EDITORS’ NOTES

Augmenting their already eclectic mix of folk with unusual instrumentation, this Colorado quintet excel at drawing deep emotion from the depths of their own restraint. The wistful Petals is rich in strings: Celtic-inspired fiddle adds a burst of vigor to "Raindrops" and "Sea Monster," while the mournful wail of a cello lends gravity to the title track. Jazzy basslines even add a cool, swinging vibe to "Hello You Who" and "Furthest Shore." Still, it somehow all feels intimate and spare, with every instrument delicately configured behind bittersweet harmonies.

Confusing Band

Some of these songs are absolutely brilliant and others are boring - verging on actually bad songs. Every one of their albums has been this way. I don't know why. They are definitely wildly inconsistent. At their best, the remind me of Mipso. Tracks 4, 6 and 10 are fantastic.

I think my issue is that i don't like the songs where the girl sings solo. She's got too much warble in her voice. I don't see that as a strength. The pretentious tend to see it as a strength. She's great as a supporting vocalist though.

Excellent album

If you appreciate good musicianship, acoustic music, bluegrass/newgrass, alt folk and interesting lyrics this album is for you. Soulful to the end. Looking forward to the next one.
