Nearly home after walking through an ominous, post-rain mist, I found myself square in the middle of a breathtaking new album. I kept walking. Each step a result of the music unfolding between my ears.
Port St. Willow’s Holiday will remove you from the physical world and take you through lands of dark, misunderstood mysteries. It’s simple and at the same time a carefully developed complexity.
Nick Principe of Brooklyn, NY is the talent behind Port St. Willow. It goes without saying that Principe’s influence draws heavily from RIF favorite, The Antlers. Holiday is meant to be listened to as one, continuous song, front to back. Each track’s sound, as well as the lyrics, unfold as a breathtaking story. Every listen takes on a new and more intricate definition.
Take a well-deserved 1 hr break with Port St. Willow. You deserve it and will be thankful you did. Chao.
