THE INDIGO GIRLS

Poseidon and the Bitter Bug

2009-05-11

The Indigo Girls' 13th album, "Poseidon and the Bitter Bug," is a summation of their 22 years of playing together. The album has an overall mellow folk-rock feel. The songs range in topic from love to death, but are generally darker in nature. Emily Saliers' and Amy Ray's experience together is apparent in their ability to anticipate each other's artistic and emotional direction. The album was recorded in two versions: a full band version, and an acoustic version with only Ray and Saliers. This, the full band version, accomplishes things impossible for an acoustic duo. Overall, the album has a refreshing, new feel.
