Thorns to Sleep
Macdonalds fourth and most accomplished album. An album to be consumed very late at night, especially on headphones while enjoying your favourite evening indulgence. Exquisite acoustic Gibson L00 fingerpicked acoustic guitar, Ross's velvety voice accompanied with lush but spartan double bass, cello, vibraphone, bass clarinet, horns and piano. Drifting, dreaming, complex, subtle, melancholy, earnest, intimate, bittersweet, romantic, political, searching, yearning, literate, poignant, plaintive, reflective, ambient, cinematic, atmospheric and nocturnal.
