Unadulterated folk from Rebecca Hall and Ken Anderson that calls to mind Judy Collins, Nick Drake, and Simon & Garfunkel among others? Yup. This is the real deal and instead of sounding painfully earnest and, as a result, dorky, Hall and Anderson instead inhabit the material with an uncommon honesty that wins the listener over with a gentle swiftness on tracks such as “Rolling Train”, “Never Realized”, and “Sally Lazy”, to name a few. It’s great to hear an act eschew sentimentality in favor of honesty (that word again) and to prove that you don’t have to go raiding the memory of others to find the stuff that really good songs are made of.
