The latest Acorn album has the good graces to make the surroundings of its listener seem a little more rustic and Canadian (it was recored in a cabin up there), regardless of whether that listener is in the middle of Staten Island or is in a hut somvewhere on the Russian steppes. It opens with “Cobbled From Dust,” which sets the scene with its melancholic and realistic lyrics. Recovering from solemn songs like “Restoration” and “On The Line,” “Bobcat Goldwraith” is a loving little number with a balance of wind instruments and percussion. The entirety of No Ghost is filled with poetic verses about the usual triumphs and failures of love, and taken together amounts to an emotionally mature piece of work with a healthy amount of upbeat, exciting tracks to go with it.
