Keeley Forsyth's debut is a solid entry into the contemporary folk canon, but not much makes it stand out. It has a nice and dark atmosphere to it, but so do plenty of other singer-songwriter releases from the past decade. Still, I highly enjoyed my time with Debris, as short as it may have been.

pros:
- nice soundscape
- good instrumentation

cons:
- very short (<30 minutes long)
