    Northern Shore explores terrain that's simultaneously familiar and bracingly fresh; it's a gem.

    There's a fair amount of stuff here that does work here and works well.

    The band's adventurous use of sampling and beats pays off when supporting Andy Maize's vocal on The Herd, but the alt-folk arrangements tend to get melodramatic on quieter songs like I'll Be There and the tremolo-piano-treated title track.
