Album Review
Red West
Reviewed 2005-10-26
Great guitar-based indie-pop, organic, distinctive fem-oh wait-male soprano vocals, folk-twang leanings (insert says “alt-country”). Full band with guests. Very oblique lyrics.

+1.catchy mid-fast
+2.bouncy! minor-key, like a western
4.Rhodes intro, then fiddle and band, like a spring afternoon with the folks
+5.mostly guitar and voice, mid-slow, not an obvious pick, has a rugged beauty. Calexico at end.
6.Fast bluegrass
+7.Fast, guest banjo, happy, more a “breakdown” than a “nervous breakdown”
8.slow, and the arpeggiated major chords rub me the wrong way
+9.mathy, mid-fast, minor key guitar jangling
+10.acoustic guit takes lead, pretty, harmonized vox, no drums or ‘lect guitar until last third
