This is exactly the kind of record we hoped Cameron McGill would make for his Parasol debut; songs stripped down and stories laid bare. The songs show a similar vulnerability evident in many of McGill's recordings, though here he returns to the thoughtful folk musings he has made his signature. There is always enough pop to make the songs memorable, but this album deals a weightier hand than his last, the self-released Hold On Beauty. Cameron is aided & abetted by vocalist Kathleen Bracken (Those Transatlantics) on a handful of duets and backed by What Army, comprised of Noah Harris (Elanors), Daniel McMahon (Wandering Sons), Rodrigo Palma (Judah Johnson) and Darren Garvey (Andreas Kapsalis Trio).
