Unaddressed – The Dead Pens (as told by Mr. Bones)

In Unaddressed the The Dead Pens present a dreamy semi-acoustic indie sound with a richness that is amazing given that it is comprised of only piano/vocals (Danah Koch), guitar (Ryan Abbot), and cello (Sally McGee). The overall sound is minimalist but quite accessible with the vibrato of McGee’s cello nicely complementing the angelic timbre in Koch’s vocals and supported by Abott’s intriguing guitar. Top it off with interesting key and timing changes plus introspective lyrics and you’ve got a top notch college radio sound in which every track is deserves to be played.

FCC: None (expletive on #5 has been removed on this CD)
RIYL: Cowboy Junkies, Birds of Chicago

1 Claire – melancholic with exquisite guitar, piano & cello interplay (med, 3:25) **
2 Coffee & Cinnamon – love song that really shows off Koch’s vocals with a Norwegian Wood sort of vibe (fast, 3:08) ***
3 Tethered – sublime piano/cello interplay (med, 3:03)
4 Little Left In Me – lament over letting someone go with lovely spare guitar setting the mood (slow, 4:37) *
5 Write The Wrongs – hard driving X sound with killer cello & great bridge (fast, 3:40) **
6 Unaddressed & Undressed – drop dead beautiful love song with a soulful blues feel and glass shattering high notes (slow, 4:56) ***
