Download: The Yarrows--"May"
Download: The Yarrows--"Diamond"
The Yarrows’ Plum comes at you with such subtlety and mastery of its own language that it's hard to believe that this album is a debut. Plum is a musical atmosphere as textured and psychological as the songs themselves, filled with full-blooded and naked emotionalism that never descends into melodrama. It’s a sublime record, one that trucks in the same territory mined by tindersticks and the National while sounding wholly unique. Really take your time with these. They're worth it.
