Album Review
MC Dizzy Jackson
Reviewed 2011-12-28
Married duo playing folky, jazzy, mostly easy-going songs. Instrumentation of guitar, drums, keys, bass. The guys voice sounds very similar to Sean Rowe’s (recent A-file). It’s quite magnetic, very measured and heartfelt. This is some simple, yet fantastic stuff! Any song is worth a play, except FCC #6.

*My Favorites*: All of ‘em.

1. (3:48) Mid. Heavy, spooky guitar intro, then vocal, then gets jazzy with plodding beat, piano, guitar.
2. (3:17) Mid. Mellow, hypnotic picked guitar, keys.
3. (4:28) Mid. Easy-going porch song, minimal drum, picked guitar, harmonizing. Song about troubled love.
4. (3:06) Mid. Loungey, jazzy, cool electric guitar toward end, cool percussion.
5. (3:15) Mid. Upbeat, jazzy, great guitar, vocal gets screaming at parts with killer electric guitar.
6. (3:39) Slow / MId. FCC. Simple folky tune with easy picked / strummed guitar.
7. (3:45) Mid. Gospel feel, nice beat, keys, drums. Vocal gets really into it with exuberance.
8. (2:35) Slow / Mid. Sparse, folky tune. Really easy-going and nice, female backing vocal.
9. (2:15) Mid. Title track. Mellowy, sparse, upbeat with great guitar, drums. Very cool.
10. (5:02) Mid. Takes a few seconds to come up to volume, then great percussion, almost a Tom Waits vocal thing going on. Upbeat and ultimately driving. Hip and cool, daddy-o.
11. (2:57) Slow / Mid. Piano, vocal. Very touching.
