CAJITA: Bristol Live Review

Published yesterday, a great review of Tiny Ghosts, the latest release from Folkwit Records:

“Thoughtful and patient, with additions of brass and choral ensembles, Cajita brings to mind first and foremost, Sufjan Stevens, or in more modest moments King Creosote – not to mention some serious Deathcab overtones throughout.

Promising qualities we’re sure, but there;s a humble lyrical dexterity. “I don’t mean to make it rain, inside our summer house” protests Cajita melancholically in the bittersweet ‘Lungs’, a romantically toned male-female duet and standout track for us. A Ben Gibbard-esque drum machine elevates things nicely above ballad territory.

Clocking in at a humble one-and-a-half minutes, enchanting quasi-interlude ‘The Swell & Sway’ puts us firmly back in the Sufjan zone, with fragile, crispy vocal over nothing more than a distant accordion.

The album glides along with subtlety no doubt, but the deal is simple – the more attention you give it, the more you’ll discover, and the more handsomely you will be rewarded.”
