Noah and The Whale
The First Days of Spring - Cherrytree Records
FILTER Grade: 83%
By Nevin Martell on January 28, 2010
These Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach-loving U.K. indie hopefuls follow up 2008’s critically hurrahed Peaceful, the World Lays Me Down with a charming new proposition. The First Days of Spring falls in the gentle, folky space between Belle & Sebastian and It’s Jo and Danny, but manages to carve out a singular place for itself with thoughtful lyricism and artful songwriting.
