Bond Street Bridge

Spring Summer Awesome Winter

(Monkey Records)

4/10

Reviewed by James Thompson

Kiwi multi-intrumentalist Sam Prebble's sophomore solo outing is a typically folk infused affair - the sort of music Flight of the Conchords accompany with comedy lyrics.

No such laughs are to be had on this outing, amounting to a decidedly bland listen, living neither in the dire nor inspiring ranks.

It's all a bit too try-hard for my ears - perhaps too formulaic - lacking a certain glow to inspire on these cold wintery days.
