There are some instances where the music jumps into overdrive, almost a westernized version of the Breeders with a pair of female voices up front over a simple yet booming sound, but just as quickly things cool down. For instance, half way through the album, the loud Erase the Lines eases into Atlantis, a piano driven number featuring a four woman choir made up of Nagler, Corbala, Gillian Welch, and Jenny Lewis. Yea, THAT Lewis. The same Lewis who said, "Morgan Nagler is my favorite songwriter. Period." Talk about a celebrity endorsement!
The album came out at the end of last month and is available now. Enjoy the opening track, 103, which reminds me of the Beatles' When I'm Sixty-Four. Then there's From The Start/Jamboree, a straight ahead hoe-down number. If you enjoy the pair, you'll most likely enjoy the rest of the album.
