It’s easy to hear the influence of Robin Jackson’s previous band, the dark boho-cabaret band, Vagabond Opera. It’s no real surprise that the Portland based multi-instrumentalist has also worked with Amanda Palmer. The moody Drifting at Sea is taken from his new album Dark Stars. It’s a drifting, lilting soliloquised expounding on the way love dwindled and left behind a hollow husk of loneliness. And it has a hummable tune.
