“West My Friend instantly affects a feeling of familiarity. Their broad take on folk not only encompasses traditional folk from Cape Breton, but moves into the coffee houses San Francisco in the 60s. And hey, let's throw some cabaret in there for good measure. Folk is merely a jumping off point leading to gems like the majestic fanfare of "Missing You" and more intimate numbers like "Ode To Sylvia Plath". There is a certain whimsy to some of their work, but it isn't foolish at all. Rather, it describes a broad range of emotions without apologizing for their hand in the result of said emotions. This album is the culmination of some pretty stellar musicians that are very comfortable speaking each others' languages. When The Ink Dries is a stunning follow up that proves that West My Friend won't be in the shadows for long.”
