Album Review
Boo Radley
Reviewed 2006-06-02
Soft understated indie pop from North Carolina. If Zach Braff were to put together a movie soundtrack for "Garden State 2", I'm sure this band would be considered for inclusion. Their sound is subtle, folksy, & very pastoral in approach: like a late-60s Kinks album with all the cool rock songs taken out. Warm-sounding but not fun... the songs are a little too delicate for my taste but all are expertly crafted. The ideal music for Lazin' on a Sunny Afternoon.
No FCCs. Try: 1,3,9,5

*1) Mid-tempo waltz w/ swaying pianos, woozy harmonies, & cyclical guitar picking. Nice.
2) Steady 5/4 groove with sleepy harmonies. Electric guitar low in the mix.
*3) Sad, melancholy pop underscored nicely by doleful horns
4) Hymn-like w/ Hammond organ. Quiet & fragile.
*5) Finally, a song with a little bounce. Mid-Tempo pop: upbeat yet reserved. Some distortion at song's end
6) Another short slow waltz with a precious Alt-Country feel
7) Slow wistful pop.
8) Light, warm, piano ballad
*9) Mid-tempo & downright jaunty. Rolling, carefree, & playful. The record's most upbeat number.
10) Low-key pop until some shoegazing theatrics at the end. Long fadeout.
11) Melancholy, shimmering & sad. Pretty melody.
12) Features lazy banjo and flute. Picks up speed as it goes along. Could have been a Wilco out-take.
13) Fuzzy guitar pop w/ a hint of Psych. Guitar feedback climax.
