Comments:

What a gorgeous, mournful, powerful album this is. It obsessed me for weeks and weeks with its emotive power, and how it feels like an emotional journey. Every time I play it I get caught up in it. Though she sounds a little like other artists (Bat for Lashes, Torres) her inventiveness is her own. I adore this album. (Neile)

pretty spectacular "dark-folk." A favorite of 2014. (mcurry@io.com)

It makes me feel like a gutted young person again in the best way possible. (timjy@sbcglobal.net)

Such a great album! Haunting and moody in all the best ways. Just as great (or perhaps even better) as Some Heavy Ocean. (Neile)

One of the best albums of the year. (timjy@sbcglobal.net)
