    Setting banjos and bonfires aside, the folk roots are now replaced by a rich baroque pop accompanying a dark ride inside Huebert's mind.

    Like most of the delightfully bleak Nervous, it's both dense and impossibly airy, like a storm cloud about to blow.

    What's on the surface is arresting, but there's far more to discover deep inside.

    The songs might not be classics quite yet but the sounds on offer here suggest that the best of Siskiyou might yet be ahead.

    Nervous comes three-plus years after 2011's Keep Away the Dead and showcases the same organic leap in emotion and energy that characterized the difference from the first two.

    Much of Nervous is a little heavy for what is, on the surface at least, a gentle, lilting folk inflected album. However, there are moments of utter joyfulness to be found.

    The songwriting doesn’t quite match the ambitions here, and that gives the LP a transitory feel--that, too, may be fitting, given Huebert’s long season.
