    When you strip back the eccentric arrangements and lush production, Watkins can still deliver.

    ht Sun is a bold album, and much of it seems to be about casting off the comfortable. But when it works, it works very well.

    Sun Midnight Sun, which deftly combines all these forces--bluegrass, folk, indie rock, pop, country--into something that sounds smooth and comfortable in its identity, where others might just sound jumbled.

    Overall this disc is a well-made breeze of strong songs and great playing, but the moments of fence-sitting hold it back.
