In March, Carl Creighton unearthed the stunning melancholy of Brookings. Written and recorded in the wake of personal tragedy back in 2010, Brookings was originally shelved before it’s recent release, so it acted more as a time capsule look a Creighton than a present day portrait. In contrast, The World Is A Beautiful Place is a resuscitating collection of dreamy folk. Steeped in reverie, Creighton channels Simon & Garfunkel, while harmonizing with layers of his own vocals. The sadness is overcome by its fascination with the often overlooked magnificence of the simple things in life.
