AllMusic Review by

Warm, weary, wild, and wounded, The Weatherman, the third long-player from Johannesburg, South Africa-born, Philadelphia-raised, and Boulder, Colorado-based singer/songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov, picks up where 2009's well-received This Empty Northern Hemisphere left off, presenting another stylistically austere yet emotionally charged set of lyrical and melodious indie folk songs that invoke names like José González, Bon Iver, A.A. Bondy, and Josh Ritter. Released on Isakov's own Suitcase Town Music imprint, highlights include the languid and lush opener "Amsterdam," the wistful "She Always Takes It Back," the dreamy "Saint Valentine," and the impossibly lovely "Suitcase Full of Sparks."
