Devendra Banhart fans take note: this eccentrically attired pair of nuveau folkers are responsible for a brand of scrappy hippy rock & roll that's going to suit your kaftan-wearing ways down to a T. Sheesh, they even collared his producer Thom Monahan for mixing duties. You might think all this sounds a bit too 2005 to really make the grade at this stage, and yeah, it is, but so long as you're alright with nanny goat vibrato and excessive use of Native American jewelry, it's not necessarily against all odds that you'll find some affection for this album. Songs that address John The Baptist as "Johnny" (on 'Turn You Around') and make such statements as: "she swallows the sunshine/ I harvest the moon." (that's from 'Ride Easy', by the way) are always going to a little hard to swallow - especially when the band in question take such heavy visual pointers from acts who've already done this sort of thing far more convincingly - but these two aren't without their charms: Tommy Eisner mans the guitar while Linda Beecroft plays drums, with shared responsibility on the vocal front; the mind boggles as to how many times they must have been described as the freak-folk White Stripes. Sure enough, on the likes of 'My My My' that's pretty much the vibe, and heck, they actually pull it off very nicely.
