Archer on target

"Although Prewitt doesn't possess James Mercer's earth-shattering tenor or A.C. Newman's hand at pop hooks, those limitations have only led him down a more carefully considered--and more interesting--route. His struggle to circumvent has earned him one of the most idiosyncratic and captivating voices in songwriting, and Wilderness is his most focused solo effort yet." - Sam Ubl, Pitchfork, on Archer Prewitt's latest (Thrill Jockey)
