For British folk-balladeer James William Hindle, the road to success has mainly been outside his homeland. Though having opened for artists like The Shins and Devendra Banhart in bucolic England, it is the U.S. that has most openly embraced this young singer. On Town Feeling, his third full-length album, the same wistful, delicately-strummed melodies that garnered critical praise for his self-titled debut and his second album Prospect Park are strewn with hope and acoustic longing. His songs have been featured on The OC, One Tree Hill, MTV Road Rules, The Real World and on the DVD releases for the show Roswell.On Town Feeling, there's the definite sound of a maturity found. After over a year of touring the U.S. with Of Montreal, The Essex Green and The Ladybug Transistor and appearing on compilations with Elliott Smith, Bright Eyes, Wilco and Spoon, among others, Hindle's musical persona has begun to spread its wings.Hindle is ably joined on Town Feeling by Vetiver and members of Currituck Co. and Espers and it was recorded by Gary Olson of The Ladybug Transistor.
