"The easiest critical dart to toss at an electronic musician is to suggest that his/her music doesn''t boast the same kind of greasy, crooked fingerprints that lend other, non-computerized genres a sense of humanity. But Hrishikesh Hirway, the lone face behind the electric-bedroom swansongs of The One AM Radio, is perfectly poised to prove the opposite true, twisting and pulling his beats and effects until they burn like fingernails. Folding soft, singer/songwriter laments into fuzzy washes of constructed sound, A Name Writ in Water, The One AM Radio''s second full-length, is a collection of swooning folk songs, just sweet and compelling enough to make your well-worn Nick Drake tapes feel curiously obsolete.
Hirway''s prose is peppered with imagistic bits of landscape, all grass and dust and summer sunsets. Coupled with his breathy, organic whispers, much of A Name Writ in Water invites big, natural metaphors, somehow only easily comparable to snow-capped mountain ranges or towering, Sigur Rós-ian icecaps. His compositions simply feel colossal."
