Out of New York, this trio led by frontman, Korb, has switched out the acoustic guitar for electric and has incorporated effects pedals. While “Bell Jar” borrows from Sigur Ros’s soaring guitar notes, the likeness ends there. Korb, who has an impressive voice, uses contrived vocal structures and boring guitar arrangements to populate this eleven track album. This is more like Rufus Wainwright without the piano and poppy tunes. As I’m not a fan of singer-songwriter formulas, your mileage may vary.
