Albenrezension

Casey Mecija, lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist for the folk-pop septet Ohbijou, comes off as a passionate and conflicted person in the lyrics to the songs on the group's album Swift Feet for Troubling Times, searching for love in a wooded landscape frequently populated by wolves, among other animals.

This gives the music a mysterious air, but it also robs the songs of the force they might otherwise have, which is particularly notable in the much improved remix of "The Otherside" that constitutes the hidden 14th track on the disc.
