Silver Jews - Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea

Release Date: 06/17/08
Genre: Alt-Country, Lo-fi

Pavement sucks!

Review: It's a pretty solid album. Can't argue much here. I like every song. I'm glad they kept it on the short side. I also like the use of female backing vocals. At times, it's very noticeable so it makes me laugh, but I like them. The only song that I felt was a bit draggy was the 6 minute "San Francisco B.C." But everything else is great.

Summary: Early album of the year contender.

Key Tracks: Suffering Jukebox, Strange Victory, Strange Defeat, Party Barge
Rating: 8/10
