I received my copy of Half Dreaming from Quince Records last night, and it's even better than I was expecting (and I was expecting it to be fantastic). It sounds like those fall days where even though it's a sunny day, it's still not blindingly bright outside and you have a coat to protect you from the cold, and the wind is blowing leaves everywhere and it just feels so refreshing and comfortable. You know? Enveloping without overwhelming would be another way to describe it. And the build-up as the album progresses is just perfect for an hour long fall travel soundtrack.
Here's the opener:

And the closer:
April and You, March and I .mp3
