Brooke Waggoner “Go Easy Little Doves”

There’s a lot of texture in what otherwise would be consider a simple and stripped down piano record. “Go Easy Little Doves, I’ll Be Fine” runs on pretty well. These songs have lots of string instruments including a double bass.
“Chromates Soft Love” has an older feel to it. I keep expecting Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd to poke their eyes into the room when the intro to this one comes on. The music on this album is as beautiful as it comes. It isn’t something to listen to while driving all night to Las Vegas, but it certainly is called for when you’re taking the cat to the vet.
“Find Her Floods” has a little more energy behind it and is more in the Jenny Lewis or Slumber Party vein. “Body” is a little more dated and reminds me of Sinead O’Connor.
“Burden of Our Courage” has an oboe in it. Anytime you can use a word that is 3/4 vowels (there’s an idea), you should take advantage of it. This song makes me think of Peter and the Wolf for some reason.
Although it is not entirely groundbreaking, this is a solid effort for fans of the genre and deserves their consideration if they want more stuff in their iPhones.
