180-gram LP double album

Though the banjo might seem to relegate this decidedly non-bluegrass trio to the alt-country fringes, the buoyant melodies and heart-tugging harmonies on the album-opening "Die Die Die" and "Will You Return?" owe more to the early Beatles. Despite the stripped-down, largely acoustic arrangements, the 14 cuts here cover an impressively expansive musical terrain, with "Pretty Girl From Chile" and "Pretty Girl From San Diego" full of twists and surprises. Elsewhere there are echoes of influence from the Band, the Burritos, the Everlys and beyond, but the music of this North Carolina family band refuses to be pigeonholed.
