This new outfit led by singer/guitarist Mary Lorson (of spunky popsters Madder Rose) play breezy tunes rife with gorgeous melodies and a smokey lounge mood. The down-tempo vibe of Lorson's songwriting creates a somewhat unsettling version of "adult rock" like lite-hits radio hijacked by a trip-hopper. Production wise the album is laid back and natural sounding, with a touch of reverb to mellow the edges. Not the type of record I normally care for, but with tasteful arrangements featuring violin and organ, and Lorson's undeniable talent for song, I find myself listening to this surprisingly often.(ThirstyEar,274MadisonAve,Suite804, NYC,10016)
