We gave it an A-

Guitarist Archer Prewitt is a key player in the Chicago indie underground, thanks to his gig in the Sea and Cake, but as a solo artist, he’s got the faded-denim soul of an L.A. singer-song-writer. On his languidly pretty fourth album Wilderness the love-and-death songs are delicate and fluttery invocations that sometimes crest into swelling crescendos but usually stay in a comfort zone where fingerpicked guitars and cooing voices keep misery company.
