A great find,

I heard the opener Southern Sun on the Nettwerk free sampler from amazon a few weeks back, and am pleased that the whole album lives up to the standards of that excellent track. Boy & Bear have a lovely contemporary folk rock sound. Comparisons with Fleet Foxes and Mumford & Sons are fair, although perhaps more mainstream than either of those. The songs are catchy, vocals and musicianship are top notch, and the production is finely judged, being neither overblown nor too raw. Perhaps they could rock out a bit more in places, and the sax at the end of the otherwise-beautiful title track is unforgivable, but overall this is a strong album that I'm very glad to have found.
