  1. There's a laid-back, late-night vibe maintained throughout Obadiah, as Ford unleashes her moody croon over slow to midtempo tunes colored by piano, organ, and Tanyas member Trish Klein's guitar work and powered by mellow but funky, slow-rolling grooves.
  2. Obadiah is the archetypal sleeper: Its burnished songs--an unlikely marriage of plainspoken folk and blue-eyed-soul--wash over you on a cursory listen, start to percolate the second time around, and finally burrow deep into your brain.
  3. The tempos remain rigorously uniform across these 13 tracks, as though quickening the pace might change the genre or break the spell. It makes for a warmly moody, albeit strangely static album.
