August hasn’t felt like summer. It’s been cold. It’s been rainy. But there is a soundtrack to this – Octoberman’s Run From Safety. It’s mellow and laid back, with lapsteels and trumpets. There’s a solid sound backing this album that makes it feel like an album: put together and thought out. It’s the kind of music that pushes no boundaries and no buttons, hovering just under the melodramatic radar. It would make a good road album, driving through the middle provinces with big skies and fields of yellow.
