"..cosmic folk, bright and sparkling, but with all the caterwauling and rough bits that the most stoic traditionalist might desire..." - Caitlin White, Uproxx

"...weighty and contemplative..." - goldflakepaint

"It’s a beautiful album full of human warmth. It's a shoulder to lean on" - onechordtoanother

"To invest in this record, is to invest in the lessons needed to lead a fuller life." - diandrareviews

Twain is the masterfully delicate creation of Mt. Davidson. Over the course of a young but eventful career, Davidson has contributed his virtuoso musicianship to the likes of The Low Anthem, Spirit Family Reunion, Deslondes and more. Now narrowing his focus to the solo project, Davidson maintains roots in indie folk and Americana while thoughtfully exploring sounds of psychedelia, making Rare Feeling a distinguishing, multi-textured beast. The album was co-recorded by Adrian Olsen (Natalie Prass, Matthew E. White, Flo Morrissey, Foxygen) and Scott McMicken of Dr. Dog.

"...indie folk with a rarely-heard grace and beauty. .. one day the album will be named a classic. I do it today." - sounds & books (read full german review here)
