I became a Dawes fan seeing them live at TURF, the Toronto Urban Roots Festival. Love their laid-back vibe. Check out more thoughts and some pictures at one in ten words. http://www.oneintenwords.com/2013/07/turf-dawes.html
I fell hard for Dawes' first two albums (particularly 'Nothing is Wrong'). Consequently, some of their latest sounds a bit corny and overproduced to me. But it's still a decent listen, with a handful of standouts. I've played it through many, many times and can't wait for them to return to Australia. Have a feeling some of the new stuff will really come to life in a live setting.
