Subscribing to the Boz Scaggs, Phoebe Snow and Royce Jones schools of music, the unmistakable meshes with the marvelous, creating momentum and demiurgic interplay. The often hypnotic textures minimize the value of individual sounds while the singers are emotionally engaged with the lyrics, often intensely. But there’s still plenty of passion and fire in the performances here, and that enough to make the album worth a listen by new music fans.
