No “new” album today, but this one is new to me and comes recommended by Mike Gallagher, a man who knows his contemporary folk/rock crossovery kinda stuff.

Like it a lot. The folk elements shining through in the instrumentation and voicing of the songs bring the album a mellow, chilling with a whisky in front of a peat fire while the locals entertain themselves and anyone else who happens to be listening in feel.

For me it has all the qualities (evenness of tone, lack of catchiness (but in a good way), ungrabby lyrics) that make for a good writing album.
