Yes, you'll be hearing pure acoustics today. Her voice is gentle, but not as melancholic as the music can be. Give her a listen.

Flatlands is the first track on the album, and of all the tracks it was the best to open with. It has beautiful lyrics, and an atmosphere that switches from hesitant to free along with them. It's a nice listen, and it really does help prepare for what lies ahead.
Unfortunately, in my eyes, it sets the bar a little high for the album. A minor set back that could possibly have been improved with some guidance, but I think she got what she wanted out of it and that's why the album's worth listening to at all.

As the title would suggest, every single track is acoustic. The occasional violin or piano are included, but for the most part you'll just be listening to her and her guitar. She happens to play pretty decently.
The off note for me is the feel of the music. The album as a whole can get slow, audibly depressing, and at that rate lengthy too. This is all despite the nature of the lyrics, which might make it up for someone who's not as totally invested into the music as I am.
Overall though, it's a great listen. I wouldn't listen to it in its entirety any time soon, but a track here and there definitely work.
