brenden208 I seldom find good post-folk, but even under that umbrella term, talons' is unique. This is such a sad and beautiful release that it is hard to explain with words. The whole album has a wonderful and melancholic feeling to it, and, upon first listen, it easily became one of my favorite folky albums. An easy 9/10 for moments close to perfection. Favorite track: Old Kayak.

Brian Evans Simply the best. This was recommended to me after I played an show and someone asked if I listened to talons'. I looked it up upon getting home and have not stopped listening since. Beautiful and amazing in oh so many ways. Favorite track: Catamaran.

about

"Songs for Boats" is an album of love songs at the end of the world. It is a new folk music made to resonate now rather than endure for decades. Written while M. Tolan was living/studying in Spain and the world was sliding into recession, these boat songs came into being as he wondered how he would get home once the world fell apart. This album was recorded at home in Akron, Ohio throughout 2010 with the help of friends whose contributions in the form of varied acoustic instruments, woodwinds and lapsteel create a delicate world within which the songs come alive, sway, and pull themselves along towards humble, hopeful ends.

CD from Own Records is Sold Out. LP still available from Positive Beat Recordings.
