Departures Hand Packaged CD


“As soon as I put on the album, it came on with piano, acoustic guitar and a harmonica. Oh lord, are we ripping off Dylan or Tweedy? In reality, it’s a little of both I suppose, even some Elliott Smith. The songs are pretty and arranged very simply, but very well. There are strong elements of road weariness and distant loves. Definitely a good break-up album: Sad, but not self-indulgent or awash in self-pity. It seems genuine. The songs are delicate, and the simplicity of the arrangements remind me of Nick Drake. The instrumentation and lyrics hang in that balance where neither overpowers the other. — Anna Wilson (LEO WEEKLY)
