Album Review: Sawtooth – Sawtooth II


The duo of Steven Smith and River Nason honed their array of talents in numerous musical projects around Olympia. When they’re not jamming in bands like Camp Wisdom, Land Mammals and Generifus, or organizing shows at The Guest House, they’re crafting the immediately likeable folk pop tunes displayed on Sawtooth II. Comforting in their simplicity and precision, the songs are built on a foundation of well-worn Americana; familiar themes of travel, love, and whimsy. Sawtooth’s latest effort shines with confidence while, thankfully, not taking itself too seriously.

Stream and download the album from Sawtooth’s Bandcamp.
