Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

THE POSTMARKS

By the Numbers

2008-11-09

Composer/producer, Chris Moll, multi-instrumentalist, Jonathan Wilkins, and singer Tim Yehezkely make up The Postmarks. (While Tim may be a guy's name, her breathy vocals are definitely all girl.) This is the second album from this south Florida trio. Their sound has been compared to The Sundays, and I would have to agree to some extent. These arrangements are lush and satisfying. The title of this album refers to the fact that the song titles consecutively climb from one to eleven. While that probably had some bearing on the songs chosen, the choice of songs on this album of covers is still interesting. From the John Barry/Nancy Sinatra piece, "You Only Live Twice" to David Bowie's "Five Years" (what a surprise!) to "Nine Million Rainy Days" by the Jesus and Mary Chain, they are certainly intriguing and well-done.
