This review is from: Tamer Animals (Audio CD)
In as few words as possible: This album blindsided me; This album floored me. This is a sophomore release from an Oklahoma band that wasn't even a blip on my radar. I could not stop the smile that crept across my face upon my first listen. Its complex, brooding, and lush, yet, there are unexpected sounds and textures laid over a familiar folk sensibility that keeps everything tight and grounded.
I am not going to ramble on with a song by song breakdown. Here is my advice: if you like Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, The Rosebuds, The BowerBirds, War on Drugs, or Low... you will certainly like, no, LOVE this band.
I rarely write reviews, but this album really is THAT compelling.
