The album bursts at the seams with skilled and creative musicianship and composition. Call it folk. Call it chamber music. Call it whatever you want. Alameda is delicate and simple. Stirling Myles’ song-writing is wholesome and relatable. To top it all off, they claim the great city of Portland as their stomping grounds and we LOVE good, local music."
