Album Notes
Sitting here and listening to an unmastered copy of Oblio Duo's upcoming EP for the billionth time my amazement has gone unabated. The band has tightened up it's playing and, with a prominent new roll of songwriter percussionist Will Duncan produced some unbelievable tunes.

"MD Anderson," "Sunburnt Heart," and "Colt 45" are all brought to the table by Duncan and they are among the groups best tunes. "Colt 45" especially smokes. Both Will's opened mouth delivery and subjective empathy reminds me of Randy Newman (I saw a fight today / raging through a cowboy and an Indian / I said boys why do you hate / they replied son it's just that way / colt 45 / the wind kicked up / and blew me away). And again on "Sunburnt Heart" he shows his mastered ability to compose simple, short and captivating tunes. That's not to say Steve Lawson hasn't pieced together some doozy's either. "A Rock Sprawl" starts the record off with a very Neil Young-esqe fashion complete with frustrated guitar solos, thick melody lines and shimmering keys. And then there is "Xmas in Vegas," a sort of parlour-house-country-tune-surrealist-heartbreaker. "Dog of the Century" and "Nuclear War" are cleverly reworked tunes from previous efforts and are equally delightful.

The arrangements are varied and solid, the delivery is deliberate and well put. When you listen to Nuclear War it's easy to say that Oblio Duo and the Archers are writing the best songs in Denver right now, because they are.

3 out of 5
Raw talent is the perfect way to describe Oblio Duo and The Archers. The Denver quartet, which merged the Oblio Duo of Will Duncan and Steven Lee Lawson with The Archers. Vaughn McPherson and Andy.Wild, have just followed their 2006 release The Flag with a great EP of tracks known as Nuclear War. The production value leaves a lot to be desired, coming across as a true lo-fi garage recording, but beneath that are some damn-good Gothic-Americana songs that still stand tall, and should be great live.

-Brian F. Johnson, Marquee Magazine November issue
