"...Almanc’s 12 tracks dabble with Americana, the sounds of the ’70s, and the band’s already-established dreamy haze, resulting in a record that satisfies with each homage." (

"...The dreamy, organic haze that opens Almanac fades in and out like wind as songs pass by. Thomas’ patient guitar hooks emerge from this cloud, alternating between spindly, Western call-and-response licks and the slides and strums of heartland rock n’ roll. Thomas doesn’t hesitate to rip the occasional distorted solo; take the infectious riffing on “The Dark Age.” We are kept driving through jangle and twang with powerful bass tones and drums that rumble like early evening thunder. Tasteful treats of bluegrass instrumentation color the recordings: dulcimer and accordion like a green-screen behind “Thick as Thieves’” drum-less waltz. What’s most compelling about this listening experience are the webs of melancholy spun by Hamilton’s haunting voice, especially striking when paired with sunny reverb and acoustic hooks. On the first track, “Perennials,” repetitions of “nothing last long / nothing last long enough” float over a bright, anthemic chorus. The listener finds themselves caught in cycles of longing and leaving on “The Dark Age” with intoxicating whispers, “you know nothing stays the same / you gotta keep your story straight / but it’s getting kind of late / don’t know what you’re waiting for … I waited in the dark for you.” Hamilton weaves emotions and memories with just enough detail to leave room for self-reflection..."
