Love the new album - very different to 'For Emma Forever Ago' (FEFA) - but still love it. I agree about the bruce Hornsby reference...

Have you seen this interview with him talking about FEFA and writing it?

Great live show, love that he has brought a 9 piece band on tour. Really filled in his songs.

Wow, I admittedly wasn't in love with thew first album but this song you mentioned is my favorite track I've heard by him! Hope you don't mind me officially posting it!
