Editors’ Notes Josh Pyke’s first album is the ideal synthesis of Beatlesque melodies and back-porch country feeling. The title track is a luminous bit of understated orchestration, as streams of organ, drum rolls, and slide guitar propel his cascading choruses. Like M. Ward and Elliott Smith, Pyke is a master of embedding subtle complexities into catchy tunes. “Lines on Palms” pulls us into an easygoing acoustic ride before blossoming into a big chorus, while “Sew My Name” starts as a wandering guitar line and slowly builds to a deep-grooved expression of loyalty.
