Feb 12, 2020Only a few acts have really transcended local industry mores and enlightened amateurism to make something of truly wider, lasting appeal. And maybe none more so than The Homesick with this record, which should surely sneak through the gates of classic pop heaven.

Mar 24, 2020Although fans of the band’s debut might say The Big Exercise lacks a song with the immediacy of “The Best Part of Being Young Is Falling in Love With Jesus,” it more than makes up for that by way of it demanding to be heard as a whole rather than individual sum of its parts.
Feb 6, 2020At times strained, others contemplative, though always whimsical, theirs is a carefully constructed character, one that refuses to take itself too seriously though never dares become anything close to disinterested. And for that, and indeed much else, they should be highly commended.
