UncutJan 10, 2019Overall there's a warmth lacking on last year's lo-fi Swim Inside The Moon. ... Elsewhere, echoes of Bon Iver and label boss Sufjan Stevens suffuse "All Your Life," his rejection of suicide, while "Time's" whistled melody confirms his latent optimism. [Feb 2019, p.26]
Jan 10, 2019Tomb is a record of heartbreak that never wallows, a reflection on loss that does not allow itself to become stuck in the past, and resolutely optimistic at its core. What we find here, on what is arguably the pinnacle of his output to date, is De Augustine achieving the beautiful balance between introspection and grandeur; straddling the place where pain and hope intersect.
Jan 14, 2019Tomb benefits from having a slightly cleaner sound and the results are remarkable. Tapping into the potential his past albums only hinted at, It's polished just enough that the songs boast a greater clarity but without losing any of the homespun intimacy of his previous recordings.
Jan 10, 2019By adding cleaner production, synth and string flourishes alongside poppier and catchier refrains, De Augustine largely hits the mark on Tomb. With a few curveballs thrown throughout, the warm and comforting lull of Swim Inside the Moon is long gone, replaced by a fascinating record that updates his prior work without losing any of its intimacy.
MojoJan 10, 2019More blood on the tracks might have upped the ante, but as it stands Tomb is still a gorgeous wallow, with producer Doveman's minimalist touches left to indicate cracks in the facade. [Feb 2019, p.84]
