TUNE Box Records - Richard Dawson - Wooden Bag
The Wire - “What makes The Magic Bridge such a remarkable album is that every comparison one might make, however illustrious the precursor, feels both entirely justified by Dawson’s music, yet entirely inadequate as an explanation of it. This elusive freshness is why the album demands to be properly heard, compelling the listener to keep coming back to it.”
Boomkat - "...the aesthetic is leaden with an intimate gravity, expressing a stripped back, ragged, and crackling sort of northern-spirited blues recalling the likes of Jandek or Richard Youngs. It's as eloquent as any finger picker you might like to mention, however, the feeling of 'The Magic Bridge' is somehow freer and perhaps not as cloyingly beautiful as so many solo shows of technical prowess can tend to be."
