Hey, who is that singin' lady? You may know better than you think if you're acquainted with the Weepies, America's happiestly married indie-folk couple. But the Weepies wasn't the start of it; Deb Talan and Steve Tannen met through their shared musicianship. 2003, the year both released solo albums, was the start of their romance and collaboration. They feature in small roles on each other's release and share a great track; Rocks and Water. Deb is the real folkie of the two and responsible for their most minimalist subdued folk side and A Bird Flies Out is a collection of beautiful songs in that very style. Saturn's Light, Ashes on your Eyes, Unraveling, they're still growing on me and who knows how big they're gonna get?
I used to compare it unfavourably to Steve's album, but that was undeserved and I ought to be spanked. Spanked to Deb's gentle tones. Make it really hurt.

This release prefers to be downloaded together with Stopped at a Green Light and Happiness.

  1. minimalist, subdued folk, eh? sounds like something I'd enjoy - I acquired it; won't be home tonights, but I'll give it a good listen tomorrow and let you know what I think.
