EDITORS’ NOTES

The spare, acoustic folk of Dallas Green’s early work as City and Colour provided a clean break from his other guise as frontman of hardcore punks Alexisonfire. He’s steadily built richness and detail into his sound though and his fifth album draws country-soul (“Runaway”), art-rock (“Woman”) and fragile soul (“Friends”) around its pop-rock core. The transitions in style are as gentle and easy as the absorbing shifts in melody, and the yearning of Green’s bruised heart unifies everything here.
