Picked it up despite my plan to avoid CDs until I was truly employed. Oh well, it was worth it, the new Silver Jews is quite good. I was expecting the quieter approach of American Water, but this is a bigger messier record like Starlite Walker. Dave Berman's vocals are a little buried and his voice is harsher, but he sounds good singing with wife Cassie. As always lyrics are a highlight. There is a lot of goodness in rock these days, so the CD buying decision is not easy. If you want some alt-countryish indie, this would be a good choice.
