Find Shelter

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
As Noah Georgeson has been a key associate of both Joanna Newsom and Devendra Banhart, it's no surprise that his debut solo album is eccentric singer/songwriter folk-rock, with the accent on the folk rather than the rock. Fortunately, it's not explicitly reminiscent of either Newsom or Banhart, though there are similarities in the vibe.
