ok, so this may be my second thread of a similar ilk this week but fuck it.
I discovered this guy two or three weeks ago, checking his album out after hearing a single track a couple years ago, and his debut album is phenomenal. its singer/songwriter in form, but with a full band, and the quality, and variety, is phenomenal.
its hard to sum up the album in one go, as it travels from clap your hands say yeah meets bon iver ramshakle love songs ala;
to sorrowful red house painters-esque epics like;

But i strongly recommend checking it out. ive probably listened to about twenty tracks from it on average per day since getting it and i dont think that number will go down soon.
