Reviewed 2004-03-17
Breathy, harmony-rich pop that starts off strong with a steady rhythm and gets lighter and wispier as the album progresses. Clocking in at under 18 minutes, this is more an EP than a full-length, but the songs are all quality. Male and female singers trade off and sometimes share vocal duties, showing how pretty male/female harmonies can be. The mellow guitar and bright percussion take a backseat to the mumbly but pleasant vocals and catchy tunes. The songs kept drifting back into my head long after I'd listened to the CD. Clean.

*1. Gently swinging, smart pop
2. Faster, very breathy, more guitar-driven
*3. Quick and bouncy, brisk and melodic, with retro keyboard sound.
*4. Handclaps and flute get into the mix with lyrics that sound like sweet nothings someone is murmuring to himself as he putters about the house ("broke the glass... guess I'll have to drink from the can").
5. Ethereal and insubstantial, nice interweaving of the two singers' voices, more retro keyboard.
6. Slightly sad tune, the guitar drives the melody, and the harmonizing is lovely.
