Cassino - Kingprince

I actually got into Cassino before I heard about Northstar, and actually used Northstar to fill the gap between Sounds of Salvation and this album. It's folksy and quiet, perfect for relaxing. The whole sound of the album is a little bit brighter than his previous effort, but the tone and message remain the same. For me, that's what's most important: I loved the previous album, and with a few tweaks, Nick Torres has written deeper lyrics and expanded his range of musicianship. The lap guitars and violins are still there, but there is a sense of greater beat and rhythm. And Tyler Odom's fingerpicking has dramatically improved (check out "Debickashaw"). The songs are more on the softer, melancholy-side, but good nonetheless. It's a pleasant listen all-around, perfect for a lazy weekend.

beautiful album, loved sounds of salvation and this album is not on the same level but it's still incredible. Thank you so much.

Tyler Odom is no longer in the band. That fingerpicking you are loving on Debrickashaw is most likely Edward Puckett (could be Nick, but I doubt it).

But even without Tyler, this album is amazing.
