On the stunning New Black Rich (Tusks) Oldham basks in his own sadness, saying goodbye before we meet and dropping cannonballs like its not who I was but who Ill never be. Backed by heartbroken fiddles and electric guitars, it is the albums most intimate moment, and it's the opposite end of the spectrum of Quail and Dumplings.‚√≥? But this moment of sadness is followed by the lead line of Sailor's Grave a Sea of Sheep once in a while, I can't stifle a smile, even now that things come to a closing. It's okay, Oldham declares, you can say I've had my day, but my god and I don't see it that way.? Through triumphs and tragedies, life continues for Oldham, with hopefully better days ahead, the eternal optimist more hopeful than usual. His hope brings the same to listeners. And the need for hope is something that everyone can relate to, more so that a regional meal. 8/10 Paste Magazine
