The Long Winters

The Long Winters

Saturday, 04 November 2006

The Long Winters aren’t necessarily my cup of tea but that won’t stop me from acknowledging that their new album Putting The Days To Bed is pretty good. After going through nearly a dozen crappy press kits, hearing a CD with actual songs and coherent lyrics and good musicianship felt like a gift.

The songs themselves are like a nouveaux Americana sound, more filled out instrumentation-wise than folk but as conversational and personable as it. At times, the album definitely will draw Flaming Lips comparisons although not quite as esoteric. Overall, a good solid album that is honest and unpretentious – the way music should be.
