    Spanning glacial, lonely instrumentals ("Being Her Shadow") and muffled Americana ("Vital,"), this abyss proves worthwhile.

    It’s enough for the compositions on The Man Who Died in His Boat to exist on their own terms, and it’s fascinating to see how exact a piece of music Dead Deer became in between takes.

    It is apparent from the start that the album is a valuable piece of work in its own right however and its reclaimed origins should not bring any negative preconceptions.
