    The emotive finesse of ‘Cherry Blossoms’ might further the calls for a shoulder to blub on, but chugging full-band showstopper ‘Ramona’ shows Yellen’s songwriting to be as rich as his voice.

    Think more of pastoral My Morning Jacket or Irish superstar-in-waiting James Vincent McMorrow and their keening, introspective-yet-expansive songs. [Mar 2013, p.96]
  3. In spite of the self-conscious effort to create something "beautiful", the songs slowly reveal themselves to be things of real beauty.

    Winston Yellen’s debut Country Sleep builds an intangible place you’re immediately delivered to upon first listen.
  5. 70
    It would be a fully-formed debut for artists of any age. So it’s all the more impressive that Yellen is only 23 years old.

    It is dreamy and languid, warm and inviting in turn; a soulful work by a talented young singer-songwriter that hints at a bright and beautiful future.
  7. 60
    Night Beds offer a fine experience to listeners who are looking to hear saccharine pop with limited twang.
