Customer Reviews

Excellent band. Great album.

I can't believe I'm the first to write a review for this album. This is one of the best albums I've bought in the last few years. I remember seeing Simon Dawes a few years ago opening for Band of Horses and being impressed with these young kids playing high energy power pop with a heavy dose of Beatles and 70s influences. The band has changed its name now and this album is much more mellow. It is incredibly well crafted, well written songs that are heartfelt, melancholy and uplifting. They've taken the best of bands like The Band, CCR, Neil Young etc and made it all new and their own.

Give Me Time, Western Skyline, and When My Time comes are ones to check out first, but just about all the songs are winners.

Amazing Album with Beautiful Lyrics

Like the reviewer below me, I am shocked that there are not more glowing reviews praising Dawes' debut album. Every song brings me to a beautiful place and the lyrics are stunning and evocative. I have been listening to this album for awhile and am finally going to see them perform live two nights in a row. One of the best albums I own in my collection and I've been a music fan for years. As if their credibility on their own is not enough, Robbie Robertson just added them as his live band. Do yourself a favor and download this cd. Then go and pre-order "Nothing is Wrong", their new cd coming out June 7th. You won't regret it, trust.

Every song is worth a listen

Saw Dawes for the first time when they opened for Brett Dennen. Purchased North Hills late that morning after the show, and it's one of the best I have heard all year.

Dawes basic M.O? Simple: harmonious melodies with three or four chords coupled with concise yet deceptively complex lyrics. Their songs speak primarily to that little topic we call love and the relationships we develop in it's pursuit.

I enjoyed every song on this album, a rarity even in these days of iTunes alacarte song purchases and tightly controlled track releases. As a result, North Hills rises above all the other worthy albums I have purchased this year, and I award 5/5 stars!

Years Active: '00s, '10s

California-based roots rock band Dawes were formed in the Los Angeles suburb of North Hills by brothers Taylor Goldsmith and Griffin Goldsmith (lead vocals/guitar and drums, respectively), Wylie Gelber (bass), and Alex Casnoff (guitar). They were previously in the band Simon Dawes, but after guitarist Blake Mills left the group, they changed the name (and added Casnoff, who was soon replaced by Tay Strathairn). Unlike the more intense indie rock sound they had as Simon Dawes, Dawes were heavily influenced...
