cdbaby.com review of "Whisper Louder" (5 stars)
author: Tamara Turner, CD Baby
Using Wilco, Dashboard Confessional and Ryan Adams as a springboard for their own mix of spiraling emo, indie, psych folk and spacious jam, Summer Blanket hones in on the points of connection between sweet guitar lines, introspective harmonies and this cleverly composed ache that is both lush and empty-feeling. Speaking to the quality Dashboard fans have come to love (a hazy, stripped down, exquisite nakedness of soul met with a juicy tenderness, a budding sentiment of hope and meaning), "Whisper Louder" gives all that and more, exploring the inner landscape for all its crags and canyons, its precious gems and its rotting sludge. In short, this is a gorgeous little 11-track album.
