Another strong performance, this time of country folk blues with exceptional close harmonies, many different lead singers. Arrangements are simple, spare. The whole enterprise feels darker, less passionate, more hesitant than the first. But that hesitancy brings depth that broadens the band's range. This sturdy platform shows us a group with new staying power. Have the players toughened up with experience? Strongest songs are marked "S" below.

1. You're gonna miss me. Twangin' banjo-driven old-timey country blues. Slow, steady, square rhythm. Quiet conviction, low-key precision. Hints of gospel in the close, female back-up vocals.
2. One more time. Lovely, quietly upbeat rumination with close harmonies and a sweet, dusty, lackadaisical affect. Low-key, lightly strummed, and piano tickled country folk.
3. Be your woman. Ghostly, dark chant. Voodoo folk blues. Close harmonies feel like a swampy chorus of stirred-up spirits. Edgy gospel rising foggily from a black night ritual.
4. Wait for the sun. Unusually spare cover of a 1960s pop song (by the Searchers? Hollies?). Less engaging than other tracks. Slower, more subdued than the original.
5. Brotherly love. Slow, steady funk. Still country-based, but toughened up and tight. Nice interplay among voices over an exceptionally gritty, charcoal gray setting.
6. Record needle (S). Simple pop song (Beatles like) sung with steady, firm, quietly soulful resolve. Fine vocals spin up and build through a spare setting.
7. Lovin' in my baby's eyes. Quiet, simple organ complements a male vocal that brings Taj's sing-song original back to life in a new place. A place of earthy warmth, quiet content.
8. Butcher boy (S).

If there's a better Americana or folk or country or rock album released this year I haven't heard it. This work is full of wonderful music played and sung beautifully. In a world of digital beats, auto tune, samples and fakery it's a thrill to hear wood, steel, ivory and voice. This is Ollabelle's best release, and they've all been good, what sets this one apart is the consistency of the songwriting, performances and the production. Are you desperate for real music full of grace notes? If so this CD is a must.

I've listened to this album several times already via NPR music's free streaming albums (they previewed this album before it was released.) Love it--soulful, fun, danceable, smart, perfectly produced.

On the heels of Ollabelle and Riverside Battle Songs, Neon Bluebird is another fine collection of excellent songs from Ollabelle. They have once again put together an album of top notch originals, along with covers including "Lovin' In My Baby's Eyes", by Taj Mahal, and "Dirt Floor", by Chris Whitley. Highly recommended
