this debut album transmutes ten arcane folk & blues tunes into vibey cosmic laments & crooked riverine laments, with much to discover for fans of steve gunn, hiss golden messenger & chris forsyth.

Now collaborating with guitar virtuoso William Tyler, Fussell has made a conscious decision to depart cloistered trad scenes & sonics, for broader, more oblique horizons, imbuing these songs with equal parts vaporish, percolating atmosphere & academic rigour. "His soulful, gravelly vocals and guitar work, often mixed to sound like he's standing 2 feet away from you, firmly centre the work...the minimalist arrangements give each instrument room to breath so the richness of the tones and the relaxed confidence of the playing stand out in sharp relief." - 4/5 nowtoronto.com
