Boomkat Product Review:
Championed by everyone from Elbow's Guy Garvey to Kanye West, Ottawa's The Acorn return with a second album that builds on the hard-earned acclaim of their debut, Glory Hope Mountain. Recently, we got to hear 'Restoration' and the album's great title-track on a 12" EP, but there's plenty more substance to No Ghost: 'Crossed Wires' could almost pass as an offcut by The National, while 'Slippery When Wet' avoids the potential for Bon Jovi associations via a plaintively enchanting acoustic ballad. The similarly outlandish-of-title 'Bobcat Goldwraith' proves to be another powerful entry, laying on brass and a stomping rhythm section at the foundations of one of No Ghost's strongest melodies. While the band sound very much at home summoning up the full force of their electrified potential on 'I Made The Law', there's undoubtedly something special going on when they strip right back down to basics with the simple, unplugged strains of 'On The Line', an all-too fleeting piece at the centre of the album whose understated rustic elegance reveals the fullest extent of The Acorn's depths. Recommended.
