Perfect is an understatement

Nick and Ed have taken their time making sure they got this EP right and it paid off. Nick has always been a master lyricist and this album will prove that to you. Bottlenecker shows the most strength out of all the releases so far.

Setting aside the harder edges of Northstar's sound, Cassino's music takes a more pastoral approach, with Odom citing the adventurous folk rock of Neil Young, Will Oldham, and Joanna Newsom as key influences, while allowing the personal and spiritual messages of their...
