The Innocence Mission make music from a different era. Their dream folk elegies, which the band from Lancaster, Pennsylvania led by charming singer Karen Peris is recording in seemingly complete seclusion since 1989, appear otherworldly and entwined, enchanting and gripping.
"Sun On The Square" could easily be overlooked in the midst of all the current folk-pop songwriting. But adorably fragile and idiosyncratic masterpieces like "Records From Your Room", which sits somewhere between Vashti Bunyan, Leonard Cohen and Nico, "Look Out From Your Window" which is reminiscent of Victoria Williams' and Rickie Lee Jones' harmonies and - like a deadly wound - "Light Of Winter" with its orchestral ornaments can be found nowhere else currently. - Max Gosche / Rolling Stone
