Secret Meeting Reviews Fruit Bats’ A River Running To Your Heart, #10 This Week At NACC

In a new review, Secret Meeting writes that “On his latest album, A River Running to Your HeartFruit Bats’ Eric D. Johnson joins the dots of a twenty plus career. But instead of attempting to provide a potted history, he allows for hazy half-thoughts and hair-brained detours, as he traverses the sounds and themes that have made him one of the ‘aughts most engaging artists. The record as a whole feels like a culmination of all that has come before, while shining a torch into the darkness of what is still to come. There are traces of both the alt-folk of his early career output on Sub Pop, as well as the luscious disco infused production of his most recent work on display, as he scours the rust from his memories to present a glittering set of songs.” Read all they have to say right here.

The album, out now via Merge, rounded out the NACC Top 10 yesterday.
