Album Review
Mr. Bones
Reviewed 2022-03-27 
Looking to beguile listeners with a unique pop infused folk/rock sound, then this disk is for you. In it Susan Cattaneo's Nashville country/pop styling mixed with indie/rocker Paul Hansen's guitar results in a quirky, yet highly listenable sound. Thematically it examines the lies & delusions we tell ourselves and others in order to get along in 21st century life. Sonically, their slightly disharmonious harmonies backed by Hansen's melodic guitar along with bass & synth accents make the whole disk a joy to listen to.

RIYL: Simon & Garfunkel, Cowboy Junkies, Shovels & Rope

1 Translate - fun, toe tapper with great guitar/bass hook and light synth about bringing up children in challenging times (med, 3:02)***
2 Love Alone - nice tandem vocals & guitar hook with driving bass (med, 2:33)**
3 Under The Weight - spare arrangement jazzy break (slow, 3:43)
4 Maybe - interesting harmony singing with SC channeling Margo Timmins (Cowboy Junkies) (slow, 3:36)**
5 Glory - great harmonies over a light calypso beat (med, 3:06)***
6 In Between - coast to coast flight as metaphor for between in between relationships (med, 2:43)
7 In This Town - melancholic reflection on deciding to remain friends (slow, 4:02)
8 Movie - wistful tale of old movies as allegory for reviving a past relationship (slow -> med, 3:13)**
9 Sun Or Shadow - slow start picks up pace as lovers decide to give it another try (slow, 2:37)
10 Outsider - bouncy ode to social estrangement with delightful harmonies and simple guitar/synth backup (med, 3:31)***
