A Mass of Nothing

I like to give albums a couple of days of listening before I give any sort of judgement. A Weather’s latest didn’t need such absorption as it is absolutely wonderful. The songs jump from the album as heartfelt, emotional, ballads with a softness that grabs you immediately. I love this album. I also love the Portland music scene for continuing to deliver so many great bands!

There are so many aspects of Everyday Balloons that stand out to me. The slow swaying, wonderful, song Giant Stairs instantly grabbed me as the best track but, with further listening, contenders are definitely waiting in the wings. There is a slight Belle and Sebastian/Reindeer Section feel to the music and that is a great thing.
