The package for Jon Ransom's debut CD, On a Lark, is the handsomest thing I've seen in some time, each one of its precious 60 copies coming in its own hand-sewn, silk-screened pouch that's fastened shut by a safety pin. The music inside is just as lovely, as Ransom's acoustic songs float by like clouds effortlessly making their way from horizon to horizon. Ransom cites Glen Hansard of the Frames and the Swell Season as an influence, and his songs are similarly uncluttered, directly emotional affairs, but Ransom is also capable of a modesty and warmth that's not often found in Hansard's melodrama. On a Lark is going to be something to treasure for a long time to come. NED LANNAMANN
