    This album is fantastic. I had never heard about this band before I saw them open for the Mountain Goats in Cincinnati recently, but I was immediately smitten. Their style is a hybrid indie-folk sound that brings to mind early Modest Mouse and Neutral Milk Hotel, and each song stands out as being a fully-explored musical idea. I have no idea why this release got so little attention. It'sThis album is fantastic.

    Fondness for Jackleg only grows the more time you spend with it.

    There are moments when the experimentation falls flat, like the confusing round of noise at the start of the otherwise affecting track “Floating”. But this is a strong effort that displays almost none of the suffocating perfectionism that some feared.

    The album starts off strong but ends up overcomplicated.
