Album Reviews:

Spin (p.106) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Landes' voice is buttery and melodic....Her New York-by-way-of-Kentucky pluck is a refreshing antidote to schmaltzy neo-folk."

Uncut (p.86) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Landes propels the whole project skyward with a voice that encapsulates the best qualities of Laura Veirs and Cat Power. It's pretty much essential stuff."

Q (Magazine) (p.96) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[U]nderstated and beautiful, her soft voice lilting over acoustic guitar, banjo and little else on warm-hearted ballads..."

Paste (magazine) (p.56) - "Landes writes her best songs from the seat of the aimless dreamer and paints her surroundings with an inviting haze of solace."

The Word (magazine) (p.101) - "It makes for a lovingly crafted, beautifully textured record that splices together folk, country and indie without contradiction. And there are plenty of surprises along the way..."

Album Notes

Folksy and twee, Dawn Landes plays bluegrass-inflected indie-pop with a country twang and a wink. This 2007 album was recorded in a week at Adam "Red" Lasus's legendary Fireproof studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn, and the album is an aural stand-in for the Brooklyn neighborhood: charming, low-key, semi-obscure, with a similar diamond : rough ratio.
