When You Have Arrived is the sophomore release from the Seattle-based indie/Americana band, Campfire OK. While this is not my usual fare, I can and do appreciate music outside of the metal realm and Campfire OK fits the bill perfectly. When You Have Arrived is a disc that I think requires multiple listens in order to really appreciate all the subtle, yet complex parts at work within each of the tracks.
This delightful multi-layered, acoustic-driven offering really caught me off guard and within a short period of time it burrowed deep into my noggin, staying with me for most of the day. Banjos, trumpets, and various other instruments weave together creating a musical tapestry that is quite the listening experience and has quickly become my go-to disc when I need a break from the harder, heavier stuff that most often populates my headphones. I suggest checking these guys out when the record drops on September 17th… you won’t regret it!
