Breathe Owl Breathe
Passage of Pegasus - SELF-RELEASED
FILTER Grade: 79%

East Jordan, Michigan, indie-folk trio Breathe Owl Breathe is back with its seventh album, Passage of Pegasus. The group’s soaring melodies and concealed lyrics are still intact here, but the compositions feel larger and more affecting than the ones heard on 2010’s Magic Central. Micah Middaugh’s wandering baritone is reminiscent of Bill Callahan and producer Eric D. Johnson (Fruit Bats, The Shins) expands that beautiful string work to grand proportions.
