(Southern Domestic)

There's DIY and there is the widescreen, ideas-before-sonics, let it all hang out before it's has the life analyzed of it DIY of Wreckless Eric and Amy Rigby.

This is a songwriters’ record hijacked by two huge devotees of everything great that ever came out of the British Invasion and the Byrds family bloodline with a dash of the Velvet Underground. Eric sings like a mate down at the pub with the twinkle of a raconteur, while Rigby sings like a woman who will not sugar coat anything, yet, at the same time, refuses to lose her tender heart for every single moment of life.

I won't say if this is a great record (though it might well be), but it is one of the most absolutely real ones that you will hear all year.  I can't explain why, but the very existence of these two artists restores my very faith in the legendary redemptive power of rock ’n’ roll.  This is great stuff, and in a very special way, it is important that you hear it also.
