Boomkat Product Review:
"David Novick has cycled back around for his second album release in less than a year. ‘Your Sister’s Hand’ stands distinctly from his debut, bringing the deep-country campfire folk vibe in from the great out-of-doors, where the shape of the sound is more defined, more pronounced, forward and colourful in arrangement, all of which allows the songs to shine brighter. ‘Your Sister’s Hand’ was recorded in a room in San Francisco, but manages to convey a message from way out there in the pasture, which means David’s ability to conjure atmospherically is growing. Endlessly falling in love with a crumbling world, David’s songs reach towards the sight of eternity, but the textures of electric and acoustic guitars add contrast as they sooth and bristle next to each other and somehow opening the vista ever wider. Drums and vocal harmonies (either by David or Claire Plumb) leave ghostly thumbprints on the images. It’s a lonely sound; photographs of light pinned to the wall in an isolated room - but hardwood floors and songs bring life. ‘Your Sister’s Hand’ opens with a guitar piece, with layers of guitars reaching through the styles of time and feeling almost classical in moments - then the album really hits stride with ‘Beneath The Line’ (one of two songs featuring GOD? label boss Ty Segall on drums), a hushed, acoustic pop-rock song featuring a chorus of female voices singing the winsome melody in a fashion that recalls Rasa Davies’ incandescent contributions to the early Kinks’ hits. It is then followed by some Fripp Eno worthy guitar leads, making it a guaranteed heartbreaker wherever ears are connected to hearts. Filled with light and fragrant sounds and songs, ‘Your Sister’s Hand’ is a hypnotic day trip that wants to ride along with you as you go."
