Product Description

The full length follow up to the 2006 Help Me, I'm on Fire EP.


The Wedding Song opens Army Life and it s a pretty one that is generous on melody and offers a quality vocal performance accompanied by a laid back, blue grass vibe. Polish Lancers a reflective song, is impressive for its poetic quality and economic arrangement reminiscent of artists like Phil Ochs and Gordon Lightfoot. It is an example of successful execution of mood, vocal performance and musicianship. The happy mandolin and banjo almost sound incongruent with the somber lyrical theme of Gold Truck One (A Cease Fire) yet it actually works well in supporting a story of divorce told from a child s perspective. A Jody Call uses acoustic guitar and glockenspiel to accompany a terrific vocal harmony performance in the tradition of David Crosby and Graham Nash. The down home Appalachian banjo and country peddle steel supply the requisite mood for Gold Truck Two (Grandpa Sonny), which is another youthful recollection transformed into an engaging song. Another standout is Red Folder, a track about a man leaving his wife a will with instructions on what to do in the event he is killed. It has an earnest power that is reminiscent of the work of John Prine, in the sense that it conveys a narrative without flowery poetry or haughty pretension.

Army Life is a quantum leap in artistry for this talented duo, as the songs are well written, simply produced and allowed to flow with space and relaxed tempos. It is a personal record that offers observations on life, relationships and conflict without message-laden lyrics. I have always subscribed to the notion that the best bands are the ones that play together a long time and hone their sound and writing. If this record is any indication of the progress of THTTG as musicians and songwriters, then they have set the bar high indeed, evoking colorful, authentic images of working class Americana. --Sound the Sirens
