AllMusic Review by

What makes Nathan Bell and Susan Shore's L-Ranko Motel a noteworthy release is how they combine the conversational, observational narratives of contemporary folk with the rootsy, twangy underpinning of traditional bluegrass and folk. Occasionally, the concept doesn't work -- either the music overwhelms the lyrics, or the words are so complex, they just can't flow -- but for the most part, L-Ranko Motel is a fascinating listen.
