Album Review

Luyas, The – “Too Beautiful to Work” – [Dead Oceans]

humana   2/17/2011   A Library, CD

Jessie Stein???s sweet vocals infuse these songs that have an overall pop feel to them, although 4 has a kind of jazzy beginning, and 9 also has a cool, jazzy start with shakers and keys and bells. 6 is bouncy, appropriate to mattress jumping, with coy, playful lyrics and an organ striking a menacing chord in the background. 5 has breathing sounds, and a horn comes in to give the keys another layer. 10 talks about ???colors dripping,??? just like a nice, rainy day. Enjoy this innocent, frothy confection.
