Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

The Last Town Chorus

Wire Waltz

2007-02-12

This album doesn’t need a WYCE review because it’s already been said, right on. From the Village Voice: “She sings like an angel and plays lap-steel guitar like the devil.” The guitarist is singing songwriter Megan Hickey, the real reason why this band and this album are getting thumbs-up raves. The sound, in here, is uniquely etheric, cosmic and country popish...in the neighborhood, not too far from where The Be Good Tanyas hang out, on a street where the houses are landscaped with black lollipops and colorful strips of recycled cellophane slightly disturbed by an ambivalent wind. - Mostly
