Golden Pollen - Very Good, Based on 1 Critics

AllMusic - 80
Based on rating 8/10

On 2004's Apropa't, Scott Herren (aka Prefuse 73) utilized the talents of Spanish singer Eva Puyuelo to guide the album's soft, gentle, acoustic guitar-laden, electronica-tinted indie folk. On Golden Pollen, however, he chooses to rely on his own voice, and because of this, ends up with a much more intimate record. Not that Apropa't was particularly distant, but because it's now Herren singing his own compositions (for the most part -- Swede José González takes lead on the lovely "Estrellas de Dos Caras," and other vocalists add bit parts throughout), there's a personal attachment to the songs that comes through very clearly.
