Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2010-05-11
The idea is that these are cojoined singing/uke strumming twins named Evelyn & Evelyn Neville
+1. gentle ¾ time, led by m&f duet, toy piano & accordion. Lyrics sound like a relationship in turmoil
+2. Kurt-weill like, carnival barker song, with current pop-culture & bklyn references. ¾ time
3.spoken over music, deadpan M/F voices (the Evelyn twins speaking to eachother) tells the story of the twins dramatically tragic birth
+4.upbeat ragtime, just voices & piano
5.shanty accordion, Eastern-European
+6.Another spoken story, in 1991, following the twins from feral kids on a chicken farm to exploited kidnapees to sideshow performers
7.lament/dirge for their adolescent friend. ¾ time old piano & m/f duet, strings join later. 2nd half has great accordion/French quai section.
+8.jaunty, goofy ode to elephants, a kid’s song. Junkyard band.
+9.Folk song of unavoidable sibling rivalry/murder
10.Story, twins from age 19-21 escape the circus and become internet sensations
11.schmaltzy sweeping synth & drum machine, relieved/triumphant
+12. Uke cover of Joy Division classic, forlorn duet.
