Their first studio recording in 16 years. One of the premiere folk rock bands and first-class purveyors of 'art pop'. Edie Brickell & New Bohemians first stormed onto the charts with their hit single 'What I Am' and their debut album, Shooting Rubberbands at the Stars, which immediately propelled them to multi-platinum status.
Reconvening for a new studio project after a fifteen year hiatus can be a shortcut to a disappointing release (see: Jefferson Airplane, Country Joe & the Fish, Poco, and way too many others). Edie Brickell and New Bohemians may actually be stronger now than they were with their late eighties and early nineties pair of hit albums. Brickell's lyrics mix a sense of serendipity with craftsmanship--in fact, the whole band pull off the difficult task of hiding formidable chops under casually friendly garb. Catchy hooks don't just happen, but the band's ability to roll them out without shining spotlights on them is laudable. The musical figure which opens and defines "Early Morning" shows their prowess at even ballad-paced grooves. Brickell's singing throughout is confident, capable of putting across everything from playfully dynamic playground melodies to dream-infused reveries. --David Greenberger
I so miss these guys. I wish Edie would get the band back together and record again. But first her and Paul are going to have to stop beating on each other, I suppose.Published 13 months ago by joemaamah
