Pitchfork

Vernon gives a soulful performance full of intuitive swells and fades, his phrasing and pronunciation making his voice as much a purely sonic instrument as his guitar.

A very sincere folk album with some honest lyrics and just a beautiful experience. It's a great break-up album and a solid piece of work overall.

Favourite tracks: Re Stacks, Flume, For Emma, Blindsided, Lump Sum
