Reviewed 2010-01-26
Storytelling garage rock. Good fuzz on the guitars. Would love to see them play in someone's basement (and feel like I already have, in spirit). Mostly M vocal w/occasional F backups. Brother/sister duo.

++1. Grungy glam
2.Vocal more spoken than sung, given a slight feel of Nick Cave or Johnny Cash (not in their league though)
+3.Cool driving rock tune, good desolate guitar in the middle/end. Simple and spare.
++4. pretty pop. Slowish, 3/4 time, and a little Nillsson-ish.
+5.driving mid-tempo catchy rock
6.Tale of being mean to an unpopular kid with only a little guilt
+7.A bro's love song. basic song structure, good development.
8.Pretty 3/4 song but too hackneyed and repetitive
+9.Slow "goodbye" dirge style song for the end of the record
