Best album of 2012, the sweep of these songs is breathtaking, an album of such unabashed simplicity that its excellence and originality seem barely feasible, medium and message merge to produce a simplicity that is devastating - UNWASHED TERRITORIES. Lovely British boy-with-a-guitar lullabies – SONGS ILLINOIS.NET. Charming, intimate & sweetly melodic; a singer-songwriter of snowflake delicate indiepop; easy shuffly folky rhythms with the loveliest of melodies; contains some of his best work to date, this is where he takes flight - SOUNDSXP. Enduring songs for the hopelessly romantic and romantically hopeless - GOLDFLAKE PAINT. A small stroke of lightning in the merciless hot summer - INDIE FOR BUNNIES.
