The new Dry The River is a keeper - the album is "Shallow Bed" and it's on Elvis' old label, RCA. The ethereal vocals of Peter Liddle will get your attention and even maybe get you lucky should you play this one down low after making it home hopeful, not alone after drinking to the point where you're on the verge of becoming a sanitation problem. Anyway, this is sort of Mumford & Sons lite with happening three part harmonies but it's all a bit serious and stuffy. If I was still grading philosophy papers at VC, the cliche of choice for this band would be "on the right track."
