A wonderful debut for this local outfit of 7. “Tone Poems” is the result of a great collaboration of talents. The album feels intimate yet orchestral, offering a variety of sounds including those of the less often heard: ukulele, mandolin, oboe, accordion and trombone. In eleven tracks we see an array of sweet-tempered tones brightening and darkening up from the gentle delights of opening track, “Do or Don’t” and making full circle with “All Together Now,” a pleasant weaving of vocals and harmonies. An honest album for all audiences- and if you like Iron & Wine, you’ll definitely be hooked.
