Product description

Product Description

Bringing In the Darlings is a stand-alone EP that features six new songs. It was recorded and mixed over the course of four days at Homeward Sound Studios in Ritter s current hometown of Brooklyn, New York. As Ritter says, I knew I wasn t making my next album here, but something smaller, and that smallness felt really good. I was listening to a lot of early Buddy Holly, Ricky Nelson, and the Everly Brothers, and the mood struck me one day to sit down and put to tape some songs that felt graceful and uncomplicated. Simplicity was what I wanted, musically and lyrically. During the winter months, simpler fare sticks to the ribs, but hopefully it tastes just as good. This EP is the first studio recording in some time that does not feature Josh s touring group, the Royal City Band. The only other person in the studio with Josh was Brooklyn-based producer Josh Kaufman, who contributed most of the other instruments. I ve always loved hanging out with Kaufman, Ritter says. Working with these songs, just the two of us, was the change of pace I d been craving.

I personally spoke to Josh in Belfast last year about this EP and how it was a lighter affair than the previous album. He surprised me with his honesty of how his life was in a bad place with the recording of" so Runs Away The World" intimating the breakdown of his marriage. This EP was a little bit of relaxation and letting off steam.

I hear some echoes of a failed relationship in the EP and the astute listener will be able to pick this up quite quickly too, if you ignore the upbeat musical tones and listen to the lyrics. Josh leaves a breadcrumb trail of deeper meaning throughout.

A little treasure to tide you over until the release of "The Beast in its Tracks".

By the way his new single also reflects his marriage collapse, but from the other side. It has a positive slant as to why it happened and what good came from it. He met someone else and now has a little baby girl! The dude wears his heart on his sleeve.

More to this than meets the eye. Hope you found my little review interesting.

This is a lovely little EP that reminds me of 'old skool' Josh Ritter and I like it! The songs are warm and cosy indeed and have a very intimate feel.

I wonder why he didn't save them for his next album? Maybe he has something else up his sleeve!

Anyway, this is certainly one to buy if you're a Josh Ritter fan and one to buy if you've never heard of him too I guess.

Enjoy.

This is a very light acoustic album. I've listened to it a few times now, the last time I listened to "Hello Starling", his 2004 mostly acoustic album straight after. This ep really suffers in comparison. It's a quickly recorded set, and also sounds quickly written. It lacks the lyrical sophistication and wit of his albums.
I do enjoy it, but from this artist it is a disappointing set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colossal & Bronzed 7 Oct. 2012
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Josh Ritter's new EP is a delight. On this set, he's not producing epic records, just rendering some of his tunes with simple acoustic backing. Ritter's voice is so gentle and warm as on the lovely "Darlin'." Josh's talent for finding a hook and a catchy tune shines on "Love Is Making Its Way Back Home," "Just because it's gone, don't mean it's gone for long." "See Me Through" sways sweetly with warm supporting vocals, "Where are the statues, colossal and bronzed, that stood at the gates of our great love and kept watch?" This EP may be all too brief, but it holds some lovely moments that should not be missed. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great EP to hold his fans over 15 Dec. 2012
By J. Leafs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album reminds me of the early Josh Ritter, sparse with beautiful lyrics. He really has some of the best lyrics and the americana twang is always spot on. If you like his early stuff and some of the ballads of the last few albums then this is for you.
4.0 out of 5 stars Folkie EP 8 Dec. 2013
By Daniel W. Bleier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Folkie EP, not reaching for pop glory, as on some of Ritter's LPs. "Make me Down" , "Darlin'", and "See Me Through" are recommended
