There’s No Leaving Now is a compelling listen from a songwriter whose default setting is extraordinary.

While still rooted in Dylan’s folk aesthetic, the music Matsson writes now is uniquely his voice.

There’s No Leaving Now makes use of much the same map work laid out by Matsson on 2010’s fantastic breakout The Wild Hunt.

There’s No Leaving Now settles too readily into a single slumberous mood.

This is an agreeable record, but it comes from a man who we know is capable of something sublime.

This album shows his sound is evolving from just a guy on guitar/piano to something a bit more cohesive. The songwriting is still as consistent as ever.

Favourite tracks: To Just Grow Away, Revelation Blues, 1904, There's No Leaving Now, Little Brother, Criminals

Not a bad album, by any means, just fairly unremarkable. 'Shallow Grave' remains the benchmark.
