Masters of the Burial

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Singer/songwriter Amy Millan Sixteen Tons, Stars and Broken Social Scene crafted a painterly debut with 2006's Honey from the Tombs, a soft and wistful Sunday drive of a record that was equal parts folk and country, with a hint of indie rock despair. 2009's Masters of the Burial opens the bedroom blinds a tad wider, bathing the room in a dusky glow that echoes late-period Sam Phillips and ex-Pulp guitarist-turned-modern-day Roy Orbison Richard Hawley.
