Album Review

The harmonica-swept locomotion steamroll of "I Knew You Before" clues listeners in straightaway that Thrice frontman Dustin Kensrue wanted to release an album separate from his main gig for good reason. Gone is the chugging and metallic post-hardcore Thrice have been perfecting since 1998; it's replaced on Please Come Home with little more than an acoustic guitar, harmonica, and considerable amount of respect for the traditions of singer/songwriters come before. It might just be luck that Kensrue's down-home delivery meshes effortlessly with this new rustic backdrop without sounding forced, but one could hardly call it luck in his pulling off an entire album of folk and country-inspired fare that is remarkably subtle in its ability to be completely memorable. Yes, the slight Southern inflections that occasionally crop up belie his Orange County home and might initially seem out of place, but even conspicuous cuts like the bluesy rogue of "Blood & Wine" sink in nicely after a few spins. It's a bit of a tease that there are only eight tracks in about 30 minutes' time, but the early-morning glow of songs like the charming "Pistol" (divulging Kensrue's boyish affections for his wife) and quietly aching title track exude such a rough tenderness and sincere warmth that what the record lacks in quantity is easily made up in quality. Working with co-producer and Thrice bandmate Teppei Teranishi, Kensrue has proved with Please Come Home that he doesn't need to scream over a thick slab of sound to effectively turn heads; six strings and a dusty porch out back do just fine.

Since the formation of Thrice in 1998, Dustin Kensrue was most notably known as the lead singer, lyricist, and guitarist for the well-regarded Irvine, California post-hardcore quartet. And while Thrice always remained his top priority, he began more seriously working on solo acoustic material around 2004. Originally writing under the project name Ursus Veritas, Kensrue eventually dropped the moniker, choosing instead to work under his own name. Tracks first appeared online via MySpace in spring 2005,...
