Everything's relative, of course, and Solace in Sore Hands is much more Shearwater or Sun Kil Moon than Crazy Horse or Uncle Tupelo. But whereas Amandine 's first two releases highlighted their elegant chamber-twang, whispered vocals, and their knack for staying just this side of precious, Solace is, by comparison, a livelier affair that nevertheless hews closely to the band's wistful aesthetic.

Amandine on the other hand play roots music, and more specifically American roots music despite coming from Sweden. It’s there in the banjo that introduces the album on Faintest Of Sparks; it’s there in the pedal steel, and it’s there in the feel of the album, running through the grain of every song like a mighty redwood pine that’s been watered with barbeque sauce. Hell, most of these songs sound as if Neil Young had a hand in writing them. There are slight Swedish touches here and there, the lyrics are apparently influenced by contemporary Swedish authors, but seeing as the major themes are hardship, redemption and forgiveness it’s not as if we’re venturing onto particularly new ground.
Solace in Sore Hands sounds exactly like another faceless album about distance putting pressure on stretched heartstrings. Gildöf occasionally seems optimistic for his future, but his misery and the circumstances he laments- war, small towns, traveling careers- are his preferred muses.
