Based onRevisiting after a few years because a song popped up in a shuffle, I remembered this gem was one of my favorite albums of 2013. Based on what I'm seeing here this gorgeous album seems to be under valued. It's the perfect soundtrack as I finish reading the especially emotional and tumultuous book 'All the Birds in the Sky' by Charlie Jane Anders. Full Review »
