Newspapers & Prayers” earns a spot next to some of the most earnest and heartfelt modern folk records in recent memory, including The Mountain Goats’ “The Sunset Tree,” Iron & Wine’s “Our Endless Numbered Days” and Bon Iver’s “For Emma, Forever Ago. – Eastern Echo
Nathan K. is passionate, he can be very personal, and his folk-heavy debut full-length feels pure.” – Deep Cutz
Guthrie-tinged folk jams; a golden, jangly folk style. Earthy, soothing sounds, tinged with ruminations on metaphysics alongside matters of the heart. His songs, and any self-references, are rapt with modesty and reverence.” – Current Magazine
