 In the words of the critics....

"Beautifully pastoral debut."
MOJO
****
"Wonderful"
Observer Music Monthly
****
"An autumnal mist of British Bank Holiday ennui surrounds Nick Hemming's literate meditations."
The Times
****
"Music to cuddle up to, music to clutch yourself to, music that is, as Jimmy Webb might say, necessary. This is a band that could well be the sound of 2009."
Maverick Magazine
****
"A lovingly crafted, tender folk record that will secure them as a named brand on the shelves of pop. The love affair begins."
Ragged Words
"Magical... shimmers with loveliness"
Word Magazine
"This is a record of extraordinary depth that stays with you long after the final notes have faded."
Notion
"Fragile, beautifully orchestrated and restrained."
The Guardian
"Unflinching clarity and a sense of longing...a uniquely British take on Americana; almost as if Scott Walker or Nick Drake had 'gone country', making music for coalminers rather than cowboys."
The Independent On Sunday
9/10
"As moving as Elbow, as stirring as The Delgados, it's wholly magical."
Teletext
8/10
"Genuinely beautiful... timeless."
Fact Magazine
"Album of the day : 24.03.09"
BBC 6 Music
"Album of the week : If it doesn't get a Mercury nomination then I'm a monkey's uncle"
Tuna The Day.com
"Album of the week : A perfect and timeless album of wintry romanticism that will warm your soul."
Rough Trade..
This will be an afternoon show, and tickets are sure to sell fast, so dont hesitate to get yours early!!!
