Album Notes
"Not many bands can pull off New Wave without piling on irony and pomp reminiscent of art-school majors...The Baker Family Band filters New Wave through the lens of 20 years of post-punk rock ‘n’ roll, surfacing clean and fortified by soul-searching lyrics about politics, the familial landscape and even faith.... [they] capture an edgier, harder pop vibe that embraces the heavy percussiveness and keyboard art-rock sounds of TV on the Radio and Radiohead. Meanwhile, the contrast between Stuart’s ruminative lyrics and the sweet voice of keyboardist (and wife) Elizabeth Baker result in a sonic experience on par with Jeremy Enigk (post Sunny Day Real Estate) and Sufjan Stevens."
