Not so here. Funnel Cloud sparkles with both beauty and energy. Even the slower songs like the title track tremble with an energy evocotive of their live performances. Meanwhile, the beautiful melodies keep on coming -- He Came to Meet Me and Reservior may be two of their best songs, ever.
The whole album is Sophisticated, Contemporary and very smart. I have not even finished the cd yet, and my favorite track is the silky vocals on "He Came To Meet Me". Even though this is a new album for me, I'm putting it at the top with my other favorites of "folk/singer songwriter/Indie Rock"...like Joni Mitchell, Kate Wolf, Gillian Welch and Shawn Colvin.
But this fourth CD, Funnel Cloud, knocked me over. Tracks one and two are SO fine and then track three, Not California, would be worn out were it not a digital file. The entire CD is remarkable. "Not California" has a an official video promo on youtube, complete with beautifully filmed vintage looking NYC footage and the band performing. If you don't know Hem, watch this video and you will know their charm and significance.
Buy this CD, Funnel Cloud. Buy Home Again, then get their first two CDs, Rabbit and Eveningland. They are one of my favorite bands right now and are as musically rich as they are satisfying, deeply so.

As a big fan of Hem's Rabbit Songs, I was somewhat surprised at the more pronounced country stylings of Funnel Cloud. Read morePublished on October 15, 2008 by Windsor Herriman
