I was sent this album to listen to last week and I must admit it has been a genuine surprise.

There is a warmth and resonance to the vocals - which I find to be very similar to those of Rufus Wainwright (in his quieter moments) - which keep me engaged.

Following around five, six complete listens, I can say that Im not too intimate with the context of the lyrics and can only hope that the songs are not about really dark subject matters... otherwise I will feel guilty for luxuriating in the sound and timbre of the piece as a whole.

This album fizzes along with joy unabounded. Sure there are tears, there is snot left of the sleeve of a favourite jumper. But this album contains the joie de vivre equal to the happiness gained from your first real kiss, sitting in the bus stop after walking your partner toi catch their ride home.
Redolently teenage, embarrassing at times but played with such vigour that it doesnt matter.
A delight and along with Bizarro, one of the few albums I can keep coming back to enjoy.
