While folk music isn’t really my thing, I was drawn to listen through this EP after hearing the first track.  “Making Space” kicks this disc off on a positive note and blends together an Americana sound with a small pop sensibility that grabs you and keeps you engaged from the first notes until the song fades out.  “Go Down” follows the path cut by the opening track, but with a heavier lean into the Americana vein.  The opening has a cool funk vibe to it that gets the foot tapping and the body swaying.  “Trying To Get Home” swirls a rock guitar with folk vocals and a country-pop tempo that gives the disc a track that drives and seems to take a complete left turn without deviating from the sound of the band. “Back To Shonto” is a solid song that encapsulates the new folk vibe and sound that has grown in popular over the last few years.  The lyrics are poignant are perfectly matched to the musical accompaniment.  Be sure to check out the guitar work on this track – some of (if not) the best on the EP.  Closer “Growing Up & Down” is what I think of when I hear ‘folk’ – not my thing, but not bad.  The band is comfortable in their musical skin and it shows on this track.

Tracklisting: Making Space – Go Down – Trying To Get Home – Back To Shonto – Growing Up & Down
