Greylag – Greylag

In “Another”, the opening track on Greylag’s self-titled debut, a rural guitar lick shuffles in the earthy falsetto of vocalist Andrew Stonestreet. The song offers a shimmering glimpse of the band’s Appalachian folk rock influences before unfurling into an ensemble chorus dripping with Southern blues. It’s an earnest start for the Portland trio, who enlisted the production efforts of Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Modest Mouse, The Shins) to shepherd in the nuances of their AM country contemporaries. Unfortunately, “Another” is where the album peaks.
