A spacious solo offering from Jon Hynes, who collaborates with Toronto’s Donovan Woods. There is a great sense of atmosphere to these songs, instruments calmly coming together, acknowledged by a strong cover of Bry Webb’s “Undertaker”, the steel and fragile picking reinterpreted with reverb and a quietly yelped chorus. The subdued crescendo of “Forever, Kathleen” is a bridging of wide distances; the assured finale “One More, California” is a steady march forward. I appreciate the consistent pace of this record: assuring, never dawdling. Open your windows at night time and listen closely.
