Iamb / Candle

Come Back Home

Two artists from California team up for a split 7”. Iamb is the work on single individual - Ross Major - with the help of several friends. On this 7” he offers two songs. The first, “Three Years,” is a mixture of indie rock and folk, not unlike the artists of Saddle Creek Records. “One Afternoon,” on the other hand takes a slower pace with the use of piano and the cello, the latter of which results in a rather depressive mood being evoked. The song kind of reminded me of the material of early Onelinedrawing. Candle takes over on the opposite side with “With my Heart.” The band plays slow-moving alt-country in the vein of Limbeck and Roy. The song isn’t anything super-special; it kind of just passes by.

Come Back Home a nice collection of country/folk music that will please anyone that is a fan of the genre. Again, I’m not a huge fan of this style so it kind of blends together for me.
