City and Colour are one of those side projects that should be treated as a separate entity to the original band. Their second album is not far from release and, listening to the dribs and drabs that are floating about on the radio and online, Dallas Green has impressed me again with his unyielding and infallible vocal work.

Listening to this group reminds me of when I discovered the deeply personal work of Connor Oberst during his time as front man for Bright Eyes. A great collection of ambient tunes to listen to whilst painting. Sure, it’s a tad emotional, but I kinda like it.
