Straying from indie rockers Otis the Destroyer, Taylor Wilkins strips back guitars to push his songwriting to the fore on his five-cut solo debut. His nasal pull rings like early Langhorne Slim, always on the edge of a cry without ever quite losing control. Trembling "Karma Is a Big Killer" and "Hay Jean" flow with a patient anxiety, and closer "Strangest Place" boils over with a touch of Thom Yorke and grander swell.
