Once in a great while, an album actually transforms memories. For whatever reason, these records tint every thought with their own unique spirit. I was born and raised in New York City. I've never been farther south than D.C. But when Voice Brother and Sister plays, I think back to days I spent as a child of seven years, sitting in a rocking chair on the back porch of my grandma's house in Georgia, spitting watermelon seeds through the gap between my two front teeth.
Up until now, the majority of Athens, Georgia musicians have been about as far removed from true "southern music" as a Canadian hip-hop DJ. On Voice Brother and Sister, though, Summer Hymns fuse the dense pop stylings of fellow Athens musicians the Olivia Tremor Control with a distinctly southern, banjo-tinged flavor. The result is one of the most accessible albums to come out of the Athens psychedelic scene in a long time.
Voice Brother and Sister opens with a very Olivia Tremor Control-inspired 48 seconds of impenetrable sound collage. Thankfully, those few seconds quickly give way to a series of spectacular country-tinged psychedelic rock tracks. Summer Hymns' music is characterized by plucky banjo motifs, layered instrumental textures, dramatic dynamics changes, furious percussion, and singer Zachary Gresham singing schoolyard melodies in his laid-back, vaporous tone. But what really sets the band apart is their meticulous attention to detail. As carefully arranged as these songs are, Voice Brother and Sister never feels cold or calculated. On tracks like "Mr. Brewer (Crackle, Crackle)," and "Stick Your Tail in the Wind," gentle banjos, guitars, and xylophones join together in a hazy backyard jam session. You can almost see the fog coming out of your speakers.

I was shocked to find only three reviews of this album, and one just copied and pasted from Pitchfork - well - this album is quite beautiful - the melodies, the instrumentation, the great pop vibe with a slightly melancholic tinge - it's a lovely album that will burst up with catchy riffs and send you adrift with peaceful organs and mellow vocals - really worth the $, and the cover art is quite nice. Enjoy!

this record has some of the best music i've heard from the elephant 6 collective in a while and reminds me of the classic neutral milk hotel records in the way it adds Dylan and Byrds influences to the Beatles-strewn soup from which the e6 groups draw their inspiration. not yet a great group, but this is filled with memorable songs.

when i ordered this cd i had a general idea what to expect only because i knew it comprised a few artists from the elephant 6 recording label. if you yourself like anything on elephant 6 than most likely you will also be happy with this. i think it contains members of of montreal, elf power, etc. it's very folky, yet as you may suspect there are also some more experimental points to this release as well. the vocals are strong and the lyrics, while interesting, are on the more simple side. overall this cd is very pleasing and upbeat. basically, if you like neutral milk hotel, elf power, of montreal, etc. you will love this cd.
