Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Nigel Clohier’s new solo record is a folksy, intimate set with some neat songs.

You Come Here is a comforting, warm song with some nice chords. It’s got a sense of calm that really works.

It’s Alright is a becalmed song of the sort that he does really well. He recalls someone like Jules Shear here, a craftsman of music rather than someone with a lot of flash and no substance.

Cheerleader is a song with a funny lyric, speaking of love in sports metaphors.

Words Weave a Spell is a sad song, though it’s lovely with it. He’s really good at songs like these.

It’s a very nice album.
