Odd coincidence.  I'm not fond of this so PSD - Ramona Falls - Proof.  Singing about "noon on the equator", so I pop over to a world map to see where noon is right now.  Answer:  the Bahamas.  Weird.

Those "down the thread" might just be wrong.  I would suggest "Caught Me Thinking","Okay, Alright, I'm Alive","I Got You Babe", and "Time And Time Again" if you like this one.  If those songs float your boat, I would further suggest Bahamas new album, "Is Alfie".  It is easily as good as this disc.

Nice. A little Jack Johnson on the croony parts, but gets a cool vocal moment in that chorus.

Great song, nice guitar work, with a deeply honest vocal and backup.  A peaceful realization at the point of breakup...

I concur with three comments below: this sounds a bit like David Bromberg singing "It's Not Dark Yet" in a mashup with the opening bars of "Zorba the Greek."

Indeed. David Bromberg is the closest voice to this. I checked in to see who this was and agree with you. Not bad, although it does fail to move out of the initial gear..
