“The Wide, Wide River is exactly the album we need in January 2021,” writes For Folk’s Sake about the new album from James Yorkston and The Second Hand Orchestra. “It’s full of warmth and comfort, from the gentle instrumentation, through the sublime harmonies and to the sanguine vocals. Yorkston has described the album as fast-footed and free-wheeling and I couldn’t agree more. He simply played them the songs and then trusted them to find their way through them as he hit record. It’s my absolute pleasure to introduce to you the first great release of the year.” Read the full review here.
The Wide, Wide River, out now from Domino, is going for NACC Chart debuts this week.
