This is the second solo album of Dallas Green, trading under the name City and Color. In contrast to Green's day job fronting a 'post-hardcore' band (whatever that might be) 'Bring Me Your Love' is spare, stripped back acoustic folk. The sparse instrumentation, often just banjo and acoustic guitar, support a surprisingly accessible set of songs in the singer songwriter tradition, ethereal, delicate, full of introspective melancholy, and yet hopeful. Vocally, comparisons might be made with Iron and Wine or Bon Iver, but the arrangements are less developed than on those artist's recent albums and partly as a result, 'Bring Me Your Love' is a less distinctive offering.
