Monster & Minstrel
Ahmond follows his impressive debut The Boy You Once Knew with an equally fine EP on the same level of execellence.
"Perfectly Flawed" is a sweet and rather light opener with his usual terrific vocals. "The Extraordinary Life of Jimmie Dandelion" is a strong song, allowing Ahmond a measure of folk influence to use. He handles it well and reminds me of Sufjan Stevens. "One More Spell" is soft and has a great deal of soul. The
vocal is astonishing and allows the song to be fluid and seemingly easy. It's intricately woven and complex though. It's an EP that easily proves his great talent. Long may he run.
