Maz O’Connor’s thoughtful, meticulously constructed songs bring to mind Karine Polwart (especially on the back-and-forth melody of “Derby Day”) and Jim Moray, who is her producer on this densely rich album.

“Awake Awake” is a variant on the traditional “Silver Dagger”; “The Mississippi Woman”, O’Connor’s own composition, reworks and recasts the Fall of Man like a Delta version of a medieval Mystery Play.
