We’re just going to start off with this immediately: we haven’t heard an album this affecting since the Bon Iver’s debut. Nashville-based Winston Yellen channels the dreamiest parts of Justin Vernon via Fleet Foxes, and creates a stunning collection that will probably make you wet your own night bed.
Country Sleep is absolutely magnificent, without doubt. Not a single track fits poorly, with Yellen’s heartbroken tones dominating the sparse musical landscape. Sit down, turn everything off, and give your full attention to the first album of 2013 that truly deserves it.
