Englishman's self-titled debut full-length came into this world imperfect. It runs, jumps, breaks bones, swears, apologizes, heals up, and makes amends all in less than an hour. It's a book filled with an old family trip, and a mouth filling up with tears.
Cut to 2-inch tape in a converted barn the band helped to build in rural Ohio, it feels at once familiar and haunted. Ten snowy days of recording were punctuated by family style meals of summer's vegetables and winter's hot toddies. It's likely to be the coziest new album for the coming cold, and any stormy weather thereafter.
