When the Moment Is True (Nine Mile)

Seth Sherman played and sang every note on When the Moment Is True. It's an unclassifiable mix of noisy folk, sweetly swaying pop, and spiritual jangle. The Nilsson-esque "My Baby's Got a Hold on Me" offers romance, the John Fahey-style fingerpicking on "It's Shown Me Nothing" lends mystery, and the summer breeze blowing through "You'll Never Know Why" is pure pop pleasure. ***
