we've been taken aback by this work of fragile magic - a hypnotic combination of beautifully breathy voice & exquisite lyrical imagery, gorgeous melodies & similarly soft-spun instrumentation in the vein of nick drake or ryley walker.

centred on his thrumming acoustic guitar & the verdant presence of velvet strings, the Californian's Bella Union debut arrives amongst gushing praise from label boss Simon Raymonde. delivering a simultaneously complex & direct sound, 'Rosewood Almanac''s spell weaves over a contained 10 songs & 34 minutes, from the extra crystalline sparkle via the addition of electric guitar & rhythm section in the opening ‘Light Blue’, to the pared back voice-&-rosewood effect of the closing ‘Ribbons’.
