{The song} “Holiday” may be hyperactive in their gyration and poise, “23 Seconds” is more scenester parklife contemplation that moves as slow as a Sunday afternoon. Their ethereal pop is as dreamy as it comes." - Zaptownmag.com

From Our friends at Portland's Willamette Week:

06 January, 2011

"Lovers’ last disc, I Am the West, was one of the best albums to come out of Portland in 2009—even if its release went under the radar for a lot of people. It marked a change in Lovers frontwoman/founder Carolyn Berk’s songwriting philosophy that took the band from being a singer-songwriter’s outlet to a full-on synth-driven pop group (with Kerby Ferris and Emily Kingan joining up along the way), and it did so masterfully.

Lovers’ next album (Dark Light) shouldn’t catch anyone by surprise, because we’re not going to let it. We’ll be premiering a few songs from the band’s forthcoming disc, due out on October 12 on Portland’s own Badman Recording Co." -Casey Jarman -WWeek.com

Legendary guitarist, singer and songwriter Neil Young turns 65 this year and shows no signs of slowing down. He's released nearly an album a year for the past decade and is about to put out an inspired and ambitious new record featuring only his voice and guitar. Le Noise was produced by Daniel Lanois, who added some expansive studio effects. But at its heart, the album showcases Young's gifts as a lyricist and musician in their purest form. Le Noise won't be out until the end of the month but you can hear a preview cut called "Walk With Me" on this edition of All Songs Considered. Also on the program: New music from the gritty rock group The Black Angels, an amazing Led Zeppelin tribute album, folk artist Abigail Washburn, New Orleans-based band My Jerusalem, and the return of '80s pop group Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark.
