Florida native’s sweet but strong, unflinchingly honest first album. By Sharon O’Connell

“The Intimate, home-recorded sound and open nature of Tomberlin’s Lyrics might suggest the structure she built with At Weddings is a fragile one, but that’s not the case. Whatever its emotional well-spring, her expression is clear, purposeful and strong in its directness and blessed with enough sly wit and wry self-awareness to deliver a line like “I used the self-help book to kill a fly/I think it worked Mom/I think I’m fine” (from “Self-Help”).

‘At Weddings’ is out on 10th August via Saddle Creek.
