Originally stemming from a brief Jeffrey Lewis & Kimya Dawson jam session in 2001, this project has blossomed almost a decade later to encompass his bro Jack, Karl Blau & Anders Griffen, not to mention the Olympia Free Choir somewhere on backing vox! I was a little nonplussed at first but this S/T album has many dimensions & a hell of a lot of charm. Kimya's sassy childlike voice melded with Jeff's nerdy brogue make for a marriage in heaven for fans of NY indie royalty! Some of the tunes have that ramshackle lo-fi Beat Happening edge, others sound like a quality Lewis brothers outtake (such as the frisky, rattly rush of 'Pirates Declare War'). I think certain elements of the alt. rock media were expecting some genre smashing behemoth of a record here. I think the simplicity & ease of these songs is quite enough. Whilst some numbers initially sound like weak links, the quality & fun nature rubs off on second-third listen and you're truly hooked. Take for instance the strummy, groovy free-rock of 'Shamrock Glamrock': it sounds like NY legends The Lapse performing a classic mid-period Fall tune and then later on 'In the Beginning glides into view as an atmospheric shambler with ghostly searching keyboard and tender twin-pronged vocals....I'm falling for this album already. I hope it touches your heart the way it's affecting mine!
