Matthew E White brought back a rock focus with his mellow brand of soulful indie. As Michael Hann wrote when picturing the process that went into creating White's last album: "Once someone starts rolling out the la-la-la-la-la codas, you suspect they're picturing twilight festival crowds swaying in unison." That scene was seen throughout the set, in the twilight, and it's an ideal partnership. - [Guardian]
