A Shadow Beside Her

Album Review
Reviewed 2009-01-18
Guitar/Bass/Drums from Virginia that makes me want to drink beer from a local microbrewery...think The Hold Steady/Lifter Puller (but less narrative-y), The White Stripes, Guided by Voices. Vocals along the lines of Craig Finn, but more tuneful and (sometimes almost overly) enunciated, low register. Sorta fuzzy, sometimes slightly bluesy, generally mid-tempo, mid-length. FCC Clean.

*1. Silly drum intro, but then rocks with thick fuzzy guitar
2. More bluesy, alternates between guitar only and full band. The White Stripes with a bassist...and a drummer?
*3. Sorta like #2 two until some nice Zombies-ish piano organ kicks in.
*4. More good drum/piano interaction (acoustic-y this time). I like the guitar on this one.
5. A little more down n dirty. Less interesting.
6. Also less interesting.
7. Light & bouncy, more exposed bass, constant tremolo on one guitar
8. Low manly man vocals, harpsichord
