Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2011-04-19 
Indie pop. M lead vocal, some F backup harmonies. Guitar/bass/drum based but plenty of other instruments too. Leans towards acoustic instrumentation though electric guitar/organ etc often. All tracks good.
+1.Gentle guitar & banjo strumming, accordion, piano. Melodic, mid-slow, hints of klezmer, alt-country.
2. Faster strumming Starts gentle, gets loud “Bring out your dead kids.”
3.Songwriter pop, catchy, 3/4 time. Nice confessional/storytelling lyrics.
4.Driving beat, more electric amps/synths then previous tracks. 3 parts to the song. strange ping-pong stereo production more noticeable on this track.
5. Mid-slow, wistful but not sad.
6.Minor key, mid-fast. Electric guitar/bass/drums mainly, but color added by organ, horn section, cute wood-block & bell accents in verse, jaunty piano in chorus, etc.
7.Full church chorus intro then fast drums, simple rock guitar alternating with discordant chords, malaise backwards sounds
8.Folk pop, pretty murder ballad
9.Brushed drums, minor key, fast, slide guitar gives western twang.
10.Straightforward pop/rock, full, mid-fast, fuzzy guitars
