    Mojo (Publisher) (p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Stornoway's unpretentious and largely successful attempt to write songs with a literary sensibility and a melodic sophistication is to be applauded."
    Pitchfork (Website) - "The songs on BEACHCOMBER'S WINDOWSILL are delicately arranged and mostly acoustic, and their pastoral lilt is unmistakable."
    Clash (magazine) - "Brian Briggs' West Midlands lilt adds sincerity to these tales of restlessness and frustrated love, each played out against an uncluttered yet busy jazz-folk soundtrack..."
    Uncut (magazine) (p.90) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]heir melodies and the refreshingly unmannered voice of mainman Brian Briggs sees the band rise above tweeness."

    Notes
    Named after a town on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland's Outer Hebrides, English indie pop outfit Stornoway's breezy debut blends folk-infused, dewy eyed, twenty-something romanticism with rainy Brit-pop, and while the results can be hit or miss, Beachcomber's Windowsill is the kind of calling card you'll want to keep in your wallet. Vocalist Brian Briggs, who sports a gentle croon that falls somewhere in between James' Tim Booth, the Stone Roses' Ian Brown, and Belle and Sebastian's Stuart Murdoch, is more concerned with daydreaming through the verdant summer countryside and the ancient spires of his native Oxford than he is anything close to rock posturing. Over the course of 11 tracks, his soft musings are given equally gentle (and tasteful) credence by the band. Beachcomber's Windowsill is frontloaded by its two best cuts, the instantly likeable "Zorbing" and the goofy but sweet "I Saw You Blink." Both tracks convey the innocence of love and the heartache that hides behind it without coming off as cloying, but by the time the listener reaches "Boats and Trains" near the album's midpoint, it's hard not to want the narrator to just get on one and go find a girl that's not covered head to toe in red flags. ~ James Christopher Monger
