Dakota Suite – This River Only Brings Poison

Any fan of American Music Club and Red House Painters knows that the only kindred spirits in the UK are Dakota Suite, the Leeds-based trio with a handful of achingly beautiful albums under their belt. Their latest logically teams the band with ex-AMC members Bruce Kaphan and Tim Mooney, who give the arrangements a majestic sound. Horns, acoustic guitars, piano, Chris Hooson’s shattered voice: from start to finish, this is a gem.
