Precious Fathers

Like a log cabin, Precious Fathers are a homely mix of ingenious construction and a beautiful alpine setting. The optimum method of listening to this, their debut long-player, would ideally be inside of that very log cabin, fireplace and hearts ablaze. It sounds like chocolate tastes. And it would seem that the key to this musical wonderment lies in contentedness and experience… A mix of intelligence and experienced, instinctive musicianship, this record immediately sounds at ease with itself. The delicate guitar phrasing in opening song Prairie Train is a lesson in crafting a musical experience. By the time the horn comes in, you already think it's been there from the beginning, such is its opacity. -
