A downbeat & understated collection of twilight folk, recorded in a junior school music room in Oxfordshire with the Band Of Hope.

The 3rd solo album from former Slowdive & Mojave 3 man will appeal to anyone who likes Nick Drake, Bert Jansch or Townes Van Zandt. "soft palettes are constructed for Halstead’s spacious voice & thinking-man words. The titular “Palindrome Hunches” weaves banjo plucking with a gentle, rhythmic piano as Halstead shifts from introspection to observation" - consequence of sound".
