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.

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.
