I was a fan of the 2007 EP released by the Louisville band Cabin. It was the warmth of lead singer Noah Hewett-Ball’s lead vocals and his slightly skewed yet very crafty orch-pop songs that was the golden ticket. After they released their EP they seemed to have dropped off the map for a while. Which they did. The band went through some personnel changes and have come out on the other side with a terrific new album called Among The Rectangles And Changeable Parts on their own label. Cabin sit somewhere in the continuum occupied by Matthews/Fray/Coldplay with a dash of the Midlake thing thrown in for good measure and if that’s your speed then you should absolutely check out this free album. Ball can sing like an angel and this time around his soaring vocals are balanced by some lower register stuff that’s just totally hypnotic. And of course, it’s all about the songs and the accomplished playing. Just wonderful stuff.
