The Yarrows’ Plum comes at you with such subtlety and mastery of its own language that it's hard to believe that this album is a debut. This is an indelible, song-driven, and human album; Plum is a musical atmosphere as textured and psychological as the songs themselves, filled with full-blooded and naked emotionalism that never descends into melodrama. It’s a sublime record, one that trucks in the same territory mined by tindersticks and the National while sounding wholly unique. Really take your time with this one. It's worth it.
The Yarrows debut album, Plum, arrives via Empyrean Records on December 18, 2007!
