Album Review
Reviewed 2006-02-08
Dirty alt-country; indie trucker rock, or modern 70s rock. This is Will Oldham’s (Palace, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy) brother Ned’s band and four Oldhams are credited in the liner notes, none of whom are Will, but the similarities are there. The voice sounds very similar. If Will Oldham played in Magnolia Electric Co, this would be like their songs.
My picks: 1, 4, 5
1. (8:35) starts with a few seconds of silence. med-slow. repeated distorted riff. lengthy doubled melodic guitar line in the middle.
2. (4:12) med-slow. muddy, but not distorted, sparse guitar. turns into more of a rock number with multiple high harmonies about halfway through.
3. (3:57) med-fast. starts with just guitar, drums enter and play a steady beat. the harmonies sound very classic rock
4. (5:28) med-slow. repeated guitar riff trading off with a more subdued one. speeds up near the end. fade out ending.
5. (3:46) med-fast instrumental. heavily strummed acoustic guitar. electric guitars come in later. sort of wanders in the middle. come back together right before the end. continues into next song
6. (10:13) continues from previous song. med-slow. long, last 3 minutes are instrumental.
7. (7:10) med-fast. repeated guitar riff at the beginning and between verses. gets softer for a bit in the middle. distorted guitar solo to end the song.
8. (3:11) upbeat uptempo beginning. trades off with sparser, slower part.
