Jeremy / HI54LOFI
I thought I had this strict rule of not spending more than $1 per track on a digital album… but this album was just too damn lovely for any attempts at frugalness. Also, the 'b-sides' one is "name your price", so I could still make the math work.
Favorite track: Jonathan.
Adrianne and Buck show their mastery of the guitar as well as of songwriting in this album, creating lyrics to rival 'Hours Were The Birds', and instrumentation that feels irrevocably warm and heartfelt.
Favorite track: I Still Hear You.
Beautiful interplay of twin guitars, two wonderfully harmonised voices delivering songs with something to say. 'a-sides' has much to discover, cleverly crafted by so little. An amazing achievement.
I just love the sound of this band, from their grungy twang to Adrianne’s captivating vocals and lyrics, and think they’ve done a masterful job at capturing that sound on this record. “Masterpiece” has a spot sitting alongside my favorite Wilco and Dinosaur Jr. records. Highly recommended! Jason Soditch
