The 405

Listen by listen, it becomes clear that this is a record of such quality that isn’t come across on a daily basis.

84
Beats Per Minute

The Clearing is a document of success for the Bowerbirds, both in their personal lives and their musical lives

83
A.V. Club

Barring another break-up, The Clearing marks the path toward the rest of a richly rewarding career.

musicOMH

In another time and place The Clearing would have been a truly outstanding album, but it has a tough job jostling for space in the current music scene.

80
Consequence of Sound

The Clearing demonstrates an increase in the trio’s breadth and scope, similar to Iron and Wine’s The Shepherd’s Dog, but minus the studio wonkery.

80
Drowned in Sound

The Clearing is a woody, creaky, but ultimately gorgeous folk record

79
Pitchfork

The Clearing is deliberately polished for a folk record, but what it lacks in scrappiness it makes up for in its precise, artful construction.
