Ben Sollee’s Learning to Bend was probably the most refreshing and breathtaking debut of 2008. And Daniel Martin Moore’s Stray Age was one of the most stunning folk debuts of that year, as well. Now both artists have joined forces to record Dear Companion, thus becoming the follow-up album for both enigmatic artists.

This inspired collaboration has made, what must be, one of the most starkly gorgeous albums you’ll hear this year. The lavish harmonies and interplay between these two unique voices give this album its stylistic thumbprint. Moore’s delicately plucked guitar and breezy croon wraps around Sollee’s unconventional cello and soulful R&B voice, without wrinkle. The songs themselves are cohesive and sweet, but wouldn’t feel at all out of place on a solo effort from either artist. And as was the case on Bend, Sollee’s lyrics are often jarringly honest, like in Only a Song – an intense, brooding track that leaves you to believe Sollee is either painfully self-aware or horrifically cynical. And the sinister swell of the title-track is a reminder that while as romantic and sweet as much of this album may seem, something wicked this way comes.

Jim James, the mastermind behind My Morning Jacket, helms the production on Dear Companion like an old pro. James’ understated approach, leaving the music thin and haunting, allows the collective voice and lyrics of Sollee and Moore to be the focal point throughout. The brash simplicity of these arrangements drive home a deep sense of personal isolation that makes the album feel distant, cold, and familiar.
