Norfolk & Western
Fragile beauty on Norfolk & Western’s third regular release, a hushed quiet so intense that it shifts and become all-encompassing, drowning out the traffic outside your window by the sheer force of its stillness. Main man Adam Seizer sings with a whisper, paying attention to the details of the songs as they unfold, sharing with his fellow musicians a profound respect for the spaces in music, for the moments that arise in-between the actual striking of a chord or the brushing of a snare. Impressively conceived, improbably executed, this is too beautiful for words and a certain contender for folk album of the year.
