"Every year the mounting landfill of new releases that threatens to bury the working music journalists yields a few unexpected gems, and Tom Freund's 'North American Long Weekend' is one of them."
-The New York Times
The intentional nod to authenticity theme-coats former Silo's bassist Tom Freund's debut. It strips down to bare and beautiful melodies, lean lyrics and the kind of hometown heartaches that Springsteen's 'Nebraska' left you with - only Freund weaves in strings and piano, giving them a sort of velvety-hay feel. It's an organic, yet lush, rush."
"North American Long Weekend' would make a fitting soundtrack to 'On the Road': Gorgeous wide-open spacious scenes, explorations of the young heart and quests from personal truth unfold in its 14 literate, rootsy songs."
-New York Post
