Don’t let the typical singer/songwriter image fool you – this is dark, spooky stuff. The first track is a wonderfully edgy and angular tune with crunchy guitars and a Liz Phair delivery. The next track slows things down with listless guitar picking and drone, and sweeter vocals ominously coupled with creepy marching band snare.

Songs continue to alternate between fuzzy indie rock and morbid, gothy singer/songwriter. Some of the more rocking songs, like “West Coast Girl” and the shuffling “That Corpse” loses some mystique and falls flat – the album is best when it’s a bubbling cauldron of tense, repetitive guitars, minimal percussion, and chillingly assured vocals.

Bottom Line:
Notable Tracks: Battle On The Periphery’ Dead Horse, Live Ground; Where You Wanna Go
Overall Rating:
