Summer Hymns has Neil Young shadow

Summer Hymns new Present Clemency is reviewed in Americana UK :

This is the record The Thrills would have made if they were American and had real talent, here the songs flow, you can't hear them straining for authenticity because they are authentic. Instead you get that relaxed offhand naturalness that Royal City seem to have, whereby even if it sounds at times like they're making it up as they go along, it doesn't matter because it follows it's own internal logic. Not that it's all seemingly shambolically accidentally wonderful, "Wet Mess" boasts a tight structure a chorus catchier than herpes and a great growling guitar sound like a bear bellowing in the woods. Neil Young as usual casts his shadow over some tracks, "I Erase" one minute of After the Goldrush 21st century style. "
