Album Review

John C. Reilly (yes, Dr. Steve Brule himself) does an EP with Jack White's personal record label, with two different acts. It's good, and surprisingly subtle.

John and Tom. Country-tinged blues. Old timey and nuanced. The other guy, Tom Brosseau, has a talented voice; John stays in the background. Jack White drums the hell out of it.

1. *** Soulful old-timey blues number, with big hollow drum in background, into some sort of modern take on Civil War drummer. Other singer has reedy, soulful voice. Yodeling, too!
2. **** Simple folk guitar strumming, laid-back duet, Jimmie Rodgers yodeling.

Becky & John. Lovely '60s style country duets. Great, authentic sound.

3. **Pedal Steel guitar. A Loretta Lynn-Ernest Tubb duet sound, but more hillbilly in the vocals. Intense and whanged-out. Great production. Steel guitar solo!
4. ***** Fragile, again like Lynn-Tubb, but prettier than above duet. Wow, she has a delicate frickin' voice. A heartbreaking piccolo of a voice.
