Levitate (Idaho, 2001)
does not significantly diverge from that path, except possibly for being even more melancholy. Jeff Martin has settled in this genre of subdued acoustic folk that would recall Nick Drake if not for the prominent role of the piano. However, the best song is probably Wondering the Fields, which is also the least spartan.
