Where Did You Come From? melds traditionally minded playing with Hanlon‘s intelligent songwriting, wavering in between different production worlds. On the more minimal folk side are tunes like “My Love Is an Ocean Away,” with what sounds like a single room mike picking up fingerpicked strings and a murmuring love lament. Moments later, “Manhole Cover Tap” approaches its title literally, with field recording captures of street percussion sounding very much made by tapping on a manhole cover while Hanlon chants lyrics over the top. Each of the 13 tracks on Where Did You Come From? tells a slightly different story, giving an overall feeling of a messy journal from a long international journey, collecting ticket stubs, handbills, and heart-touching experiences in the strains of Hanlon‘s gentle and scrappy tunes.
