Album Review: "Point the Flashlight and Walk" by Told Slant (8/10)

Label: Double Double Whammy

Producer: Felix Walworth

Felix Walworth, aka Told Slant, has shown clear growth on their third full-length release, with complex compositions that make harp, banjo, contrasting harmonies and sonic swells sound at home in signature sparse arrangements. Album-opener “Meet You” and “From the Roofbeams” seem to glow from a huge concert hall, despite certainly being the result of meticulous reverb on bedroom microphones. “Flashlight On” contains the mantra that gives the  album its title: I just wanna get lost/Point the flashlight and walk. For nearly a decade, loyal fans have longed for these repeated lines, which become themes and tattoos and quiet chants at live shows.
