World's Fare Review

by Richie Unterberger

Strong original material and interesting covers of tunes by the Buzzcocks and Love, paced by guitarists/principal songwriters Cary Berger and Ken Kaufman and the coolly measured vocals (in the spirit of Francoise Hardy) of Shari Becknar. Wistful, inventively arranged tunes with inventive production and a sense of fun, stalking the seldom-explored territory between conventional rock and torch songs in the European popular tradition.
