Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

GRETEL

The Dregs

2009-03-07

Out of Boston, this folky three-piece (occasionally four-piece) outfit offers heart-wrenching lyrics over a multitude of down-home instruments, including banjo, Wurlitzer, accordion, and guitar. Reva Williams wrote and produced this entire album. Her lead vocals are often accompanied by those of band mates Melissa Myers and Phil DuPertuis to create handsome harmonies that fit the music perfectly. This is a lovely album with lyrics that'll kick you in the gut, but the blow is softened with the delivery. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth.
