November 8, 2012

“Her band get it just right throughout “Golden Hour” adding layers of atmosphere and dusky musical tension rather than showy solos.”

“An intensity that emanates from Canty like heat from a furnace. Canty’s focus is piercing at times, a quality that should come through even more clearly in the live environment.”

“A low-key, cool delivery that’s as convincing as the lyrics … and a voice that wants to straddle the gap between an alto’s depth and a soprano’s grace.”

“Seeing Caitlin play live is always an intimate experience, this is the next best thing. I’ve listened to this record on my commute into work, and it’s as if the traffic slows down around me. Her voice and lyrics quietly demand to be listened to.”

“The production is pitch perfect, featuring some subtle and beautiful playing by the members of string-rock quintet Darlingside. It takes a good ear to practice restraint, and this record is full of it. Just the right amount of percussion. A perfect string arrangement.”
