Set atop a meditative and gripping musical setting, ["Deep in February"]'s an excellent song about the shortest month and, maybe, no matter what T.S. Eliot said, the cruelest.
["Rains of April"] is a multi-faceted pop gem. The remaining tunes are equally impressive.
An impressive debut...Fans of a wide range of artists (notably Ron Sexsmith, Guster, Nick Drake and the Morning Phase version of Beck) will all find something to love on this striking collection, which is marked by top-tier lyrics and rich musical layers that enhance each of the songs.
