Elvis Perkins' songs are transportive. He takes the listener to another time, another place, toward the end where all worthwhile art must aim: a vision of the singular experience of the artist-in this case, one marked as much by tragedy as by good fortune. In the tradition of Young, Cohen, Dylan, Simon, and Lennon, Perkins issues out songs that are at once personal and universal, combining poetry and melody in a sound unmistakably his own.
A solo career that stretches back to 1990 with the album Shelter, and an integral member of the band The Golden Palominos with Anton Fier, Lori Carson is a force to be reckoned with. Her latest release The Finest Thing was released in mid 2004 and took even another direction as not a serious of songs, but ?meditations.? "An artist who has continually charted the depths and emerges as an instructive, affirmative font of gentleness, compassion, and even wisdom, in allowing the past's pains and pleasures to open onto the wondrous quiet of the present."
