Album Review
Reviewed 2008-06-23 
Local (very--Stanford alum, currently Oakland-based) brother-sister folk duo. Some freak folk, some old school Anglo-American traditional folk influences. Solid second album.
My picks: 4, 6, 8, 9

1. med-fast. upbeat. fingerpicked guitar and tambourine. m lead vox.
2. sort of a vocal chorale. piano, vocals, guitar and cello later. first appeared on that Firsts comp that Natalie put together.
3. med-fast. strummed guitar and brushed drums (stronger drums later). m lead vox.
4. med-slow. finger-picked guitar and f lead vox. a nice lilt to it.
5. starts accordion w/ m+f vocals. med-slow. some strained m falsetto vox.
6. med-slow. finger-picked guitar. slightly bluesy. m+f vox.
7. mid-tempo. strummed guitar and light percussion. keyboards. m lead vox.
8. long (7:59) mid-tempo. fingerpicked guitar w/ f vox.
9. mid tempo. banjo. sort of cutesy and quirky. fun.
10. med-slow. simple guitar. f vox.
11. mid-tempo. sort of a walking feel to it
