The Daily Telegraph – 5 out of 5 stars
Each word and note of this album feels so deeply percolated and thoughtfully placed that it’s hard to believe that this is the fourth record the experienced alt-country band have released in 18 months. Songwriter Michael Timmins explores loss and loneliness with austere clarity warmed by a steady glow of humanity and tinder dry sparks of humour. Margo Timmins’s beautifully bruised vocals float through a dreamy fog of shivering cymbals and muddy guitars. A masterclass in lo-fi longing.
This review/blog reminds me of the good ole days when Cream and Circus and Crawdaddy reigned supreme, back when Rolling Stone was a music paper. Back then music reviews had some heft and lots of personality, sometimes the reviewer was as much a part of the review as the music (which could be a good or bad thing depending on the reviewer). If you have a few minutes, take a look: Doc Martian’s Lounge.
The Nomad Series box set is now available for pre-order.The box set includes 5 compact discs: Renmin Park (volume 1), Demons (volume 2), Sing In My Meadow (volume 3) and The Wilderness (volume 4) as well as Extras, which is made up of 10 songs recorded during the making of The Nomad Series but not included on any of the volumes (these songs were all available on the bonus digital EPs. The box set also contains a 52 page colour booklet.
Also, we’re back on the road in two weeks, so make sure that you check out the Tour page to see if we are coming anywhere near you.
