I discovered Squirrel Flower's music only recently, but this album really showed me just how impressive and pleasant her songwriting can be. I love the indie folk sound and her voice and style matches it perfectly.

Favorite tracks: I'll Go Running, Deluge in the South, Roadkill, Iowa 146, Flames and Flat Tires, To Be Forgotten, Night, Starshine
Least favorite: Big Beast

Faves: Iowa 146, I'll Go Running, To Be Forgotten
