oh yeah! the seattle singer/songwriter's long left behind his minimal, downbeat folk & instead draws on the sounds of early 70's laurel canyon & pink floyd (like his peer jonathan wilson) to deliver a mind-blowingly brilliant, & seemingly limitless album.

again collaborating with richard swift, he's beefed his whole sound up & the resulting record sits somewhere between matthew e. white's languid country-soul-pop, phosphorescent's americana-tinged textured genius & fleet foxes' / sufjan stevens' multi-layered melodies. his 11th studio effort tells the story of a man who disappears on a search for himself never to return....which is kind of how you'll feel when you listen to this record : like you want to disappear into yourself & never return. intensely beautiful. "1968 date-stamped paintbox of kaleidoscopic colours" 4/5 - mojo, "sumptuous career best...layered warmth & gorgeous, semi-orchestral settings"  9/10 - uncut.

natasha recommends : "i've enjoyed damien live but can't honestly say i've ever really been excited by him on record so when the promo landed, i put it on more out of duty than excitement.....but that's the joy of this job - you just never know when something's going to jump out & take you completely by surprise. it might have taken him until his 11th album to really capture my attention but now he's got it & he's got it for good. like matthew e. white's 'big inner', These songs get into your brain & swirl round day & night & kind of take over your head. what if i find i've mis-judged the previous 10 albums? This could be a back catalogue oversight that needs rectifying - it'll be expensive & time-consuming if so......."
