Will save my powder until I write about the whole album, but I think this is terrific: all the charm of the first record, but with a new depth and elaboration (less whimsical, perhaps). It feels like a very comfortable evolution, and one that places Robin Pecknold and his bandmates in a kind of serendipitous middle ground between Grizzly Bear and Joanna Newsom. Give it a play or three and let me know what you think.
