Editorial Reviews

Trading Twilight For Daylight is a collection of shimmeringly lovely yet wildly contrasting shades of the pop song experience. Densely layered melodies are draped with velvety chimes, stately piano, luxuriant keyboard string flourishes and smartly counter-pointed electric and acoustic guitars. The songs' very point often seems to suggest the rich emotional textures of a daydream afternoon, just as sunshine gently dims into the dark. The sensual fullness of the sound is like soaking in a bath of warm frequencies, and makes you come back again and again. Vinyl.

Great Northern sounds a great deal like Elliot Smith, with a tiny bit of The Cranberries thrown in for good measure. The overall style is mellow, with haunting vocals that are reminiscent of Sun King by The Beatles. The sound is consistent, and the samples available are a good indication of the entire album.

It really is Shoegazing music, but the vocalists are too powerful to be firmly put in this category.

If there is any criticism worth a one star deduction, it is that the music itself, while well orchestrated, is a bit simple. Contrast that with Smith, who threw a lot of goings on behind his melodies, and made for far more interesting compositions.

So, I was working my way down Nic Harcourt's top ten album list for 2007. Lots of good music but nothing I got too excited about until I got to number seven, which was Great Northern. I listened to them live on KCRW and then I listened to CD versions and I was convinced. Beautifully produced, with great harmonies and soaring choruses.

I first heard them a few weeks ago at their show in Chicago and they can really rock. I was very impressed to listen to the album later and find them to be just at good in the studio. These days it seems that all too often you either get one or the other. I can't get enough of the vocals, the songs are arranged nicely, and there is something about the album which has kept it on repeat for the past week and a half.

Forget about who they supposedly sound like or how complex/simple their music is/isn't, just buy it. An astonishingly solid debut that has easily become my most played disc of the year, especially "Low Is A Height".

Also available (only from iTunes as of writing) is a new 5 song EP "Sleepy Eepee" plus a bonus album track "Winter"--all worth having.
