In The Vines

If Sufjan Stevens is the poster-boy for the wyrd-country crew, labelmate and collaborator Raymond Raposa is the gravel-throated brother locked in a cupboard. Unfortunately, he dips too greedily into The Big Book Of Country Imagery – ‘Rain Will Come’; ‘The Fields Crack’: it’s all a bit like being cornered by a meteorologist whose wife has died.
