As the weather turns warm, more people will start searching for their summer album. You know, the one you play at the cottage or on a quiet highway at night with your car windows rolled down. Loomer's latest could easily be that album. With delicate country tracks, mellow vocals, slow, melodic slide guitar, even a cameo by Sarah Harmer, this record will work best in a secluded country cabin. Unfortunately for most summer records, once September hits, you forget about the disc completely. Despite a few moving tracks and an overall pleasantness, nothing here is groundbreaking or even that interesting. It's just a nice, comforting May-to-August listen.
Loomer play the Dakota Tavern Friday (March 30).
