ROCKETSHIP (2011)

10.00

"Rocketship is a wonderful, weird record, in which standard singer/songwriter tropes are submerged in a bath of spindly parlor piano, County Derry brass, Fantasia strings, and angelic old-Hollywood choirs, all led by Miles' Isaac Brock-like bleating and braying. "He Once Was a Friend of Mine" is a gaspingly good funeral song, with earnestly strident glee-club backing vocals and a crescendoing arrangement; the title track's lyrics describe the wind shaking a tree's leaves, while its delicate instrumentation sounds like exactly that, even before it introduces an overdub of howling wind, which, astonishingly, doesn't sound pandering or gimmicky." 

-Ned Lannamann, The Portland Mercury
