CRITIC REVIEWS

90
PopMatters

This is music with myriad dimensions and complex themes, but it never unravels or feels too heady.

Pitchfork

Haw is fuller and more adventurous even than 2011’s Poor Moon, with a broader musical palette.

AllMusic

The many different musics on Haw are familiar, timeless; they can be endlessly recombined for new purposes.

Haw is a deeply satisfying folk album. With lyrics based in both spiritual and visceral feelings, and a classically folk sound pallet, the album is dense with emotion, and strong in songwriting. A true songwriter's delight, from beginning to end. Solid, real, and great.
Purchasing Haw from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
