This stirring debut from local instrumental outfit, …As The Poets Affirm, manages to say much without uttering a single word. Even without lyrics, these songs sing. Whether it’s with sobering cello, a cascading shimmer of cymbals or some thick plucking of guitar, a variety of moods and emotions are manifested. At times, it’s atmospheric and flighty, then temperamental and imploring.
