Album Review
Rachel Hamburg
Reviewed 2010-03-27

Alternative pop duo Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel. Pretty, with unexpectedly sick city beats, electronic loops, shoegaze, dreamy vocals and very dark lyrics. Recorded in a barn called Harmony Lodge in upstate New York. People and their barn recordings! Try 2, 6, 8. FCC CLEAN.
1. Blips, drums, bass, chill dreamy fem vox. 2. Bass fuzz, slow, heavy twanged electric guitar. Catchy fem vox. 3. More upbeat, almost 80s drums, synth. Male vox, ambient fem vox and harmonies. Cool beats. 4. Drums, bass, piano. Dark, whispered/rapped male vox with ambient fem vox. 5. Steadily quiet pounding instrumentation, quiet celestial fem fox. 6. Funky sampled beat, dreamy fem vox over it. 7. Good beat, bass, echoey male vox. Sounds a little like you’re in a warehouse in SF on the wharf. 8. Epic, more rocker, male vox, some kind of string, synth, bass. 9. Cool synth beat. Male/fem aggressive harmonies, drums, piano, strings. Spare glock ending. 10. Dreamier beat, piano arpeggios. Slow fem vox. 11. Slow hesitant piano, quiet harmonized fem vox, glock, synth, sampling – minimalist, heartbeat noises, laughter at the end.
