Warning: may induce soporific bouts of happiness,
This review is from: Glory Hope Mountain (Audio CD)
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.
I would recommend this to people that enjoy Bon Iver, early Iron and Wine, Smog, Elliott Smith (sic) and maybe Bonnie Prince Billy.
Also if you enjoy things from the 70's like Jackson Brown, Joni Mitchell and the like you may want to give this album an audience.
