I love me some Mirah and have for a long time, but this album might be the one I've come to like the quickest. I loved her when she was slightly saccharine, tongue-in-cheek, intentionally awkward; I love her even more in her [bitter]sweet, self-aware, direct delivery. "Oxen Hope" is an immediate standout, each verse a mini-story - 'we thought we could last: we were real strong swimmers'. "Gold Rush" brings back that epic, spaghetti-western feel of "Cold Cold Water". The low rumble and unique melody of "No Direction Home" seems more at home in a song cycle and left me wanting more. Not every track is as strong as these at first blush, but that's what I love about an album - letting the less obvious songs take root and discovering that they're my favorites.
