Album Review
Reviewed 2007-07-27
Quirky, traditional folk duets, variously with romantic, religious, queer, and kids themes. Duo (Rick Libert and Andy Buck) from NYC area. Lots of lovely poignancy... almost over the top, sounding a bit like Kermit (the frog). Sensitive & fragile male vox with sometimes heavy vibrato. Very basic strummed guitar accompaniment on most tracks. A bit of banjo, fiddle, snare, and recorder. Incredibly charming and artless... voices sometimes off key, instruments sometimes out of tune... and all the stronger for it. Play with The Hidden Cameras, The Choir, The Weavers, Jan & Dean... and extreme noise (for irony). FCC clean. A delicate and beautiful collection. Start with 1, 5, 11.


1. Traditional. Tear-jerking romantic ballad (popularized by the New Christy Minstrels in the 1960s). Starts with violin and acoustic guitars. Slows, then quick fade.
2. Kids. Silly 3/4-time ditty about an uncle who waltzes with bears. Starts with slow guitar arpeggio. Quick fade.
3. Traditional (religious bluegrass). Uptempo. Features banjo, string bass, and recorder. Starts with spoken "1, 2, 3," then banjo. Slows... a cappella at end.
4. Folk. Slow, pensive ballad. Starts with strummed guitar. Fades.
5. Queer: Funny song about gay cowboys. Starts with (out of tune) guitar & maracas. Slows, upward vocal glissando, then fade.
6. Traditional. Slow, romantic, celtic ballad... all "purple heather" and "laddies" and "crystal fountains." Starts with solo recorder. Slows and fades.
7. Queer: Happy, poignant, high energy activist folk. Starts with solo strummed guitar. Ends a cappella, ends cold.
8. Traditional. Lovely romantic ballad. Starts with solo strummed guitar. Ends instrumental, with recorder and guitar. Slows & quick fade.
9. Religious. Uptempo, religious, call & response bluegrass. Starts with banjo, guitar, and maracas. Slows & fades.
10. Traditional, religious. Uptempo. Starts with violin & guitar. Ends on violin flourish, then fade.
11. Queer: Perky, sardonic commentary. "Master-slave, that's a traditional family." Starts with guitar & bass. Ends on "It's a queer society"; fades.
12. Traditional. Poignant, slow folk ballad with harmony vox. Starts with strummed guitar. Fades.
13. Traditional. Another poignant, slow folk ballad. Starts with solo strummed guitar. Slow fade.
14. Traditional, kids. Folky lullaby. Starts with finger-picked/strummed guitar. Slowing arpeggio, then fade.
15. (unlisted track) Live, lo-fi, badly recorded version of track 5. Starts with spoken intro. Lots of silence at start, then long spoken introduction, then applause, then more talking, then song.
