Album Review

Bill Fox's second solo album pushes his music further away from pop toward a kind of lo-fi folk sound — recorded primarily on acoustic guitar, with only the occasional touch of harmonica and the even less frequent hint of percussion, Transit Byzantine is rootsy and raw, with the uncluttered arrangements of tracks like "From a Dark Night," "Songs of a Drunken Nightingale" and "Burning Down a Snowflake" preserving the songs' intimacy and warmth.

Sad and beautiful

Heard about Bill Fox in an issue of McSweeny's The Believer magazine. Couldn't find a physical copy of the album for such a long time. Glad to see it on here. My Baby Crying is my favorite track, but it's a great album throughout.

Timeless Music
