Wonderful guitar rock mixed with brilliant lyrics shared between Simon Indelicate (Clayton) and Julia Indelicate (Clark-Lewis). Simon’s voice is just angry enough to make you feel like perhaps what he has to say is important even though it’s laced with humor and Julia’s dreamy voice takes you back to when female vocalists knew how to do something other than just scream.
Their first album American Demo is one of those perfect albums, where every song can be listened to multiple times without finding it boring. Stand out songs are “Julia, We Don’t Live in the 60′s” and “The Last Signifigant Statement…”.
Their second album Songs for Swinging Lovers is good, but not quite as thoroughly perfect. “Sympathy for the Devil”, a twangy countryesq number, is the standout on that album.
If you want to take a chance, pick up their albums over at Corporate Records where you can pay what you feel like (awesome), you won’t be sorry. Here is a sample of what you can expect:
The British folk band Mumford & Son’s album Sigh No More is hands down the best album I have heard in a long time. Probably since I got Tally Hall’s Marvin’s Marvelous Mechanical Museum.
The album blends folk, rock and bluegrass in a very warm melodic way. The lyrics are very folky in that they tell good stories that you can (well I can) relate too. The lead singer has a slightly raspy voice which I feel really works with the bluegrassy elements.
Definitely worth a look for anyone who likes some good music.
