Life In the Treehouse

Straddling the fence between blandness and almost Oriental elegant simplicity, Life in the Treehouse is an album easy to tune out of, but worth tuning in for. At a casual glance, the record offers nothing but quiet, pleasant, but ultimately unremarkable songs that mix folk-rock and soft rock to produce a healthy but tame brew suggesting, perhaps, a bunch of Sheryl Crow outtakes recorded on a lazy sunny day with no chart success in mind. And indeed, there's little groove and no big hooks on Life in the Treehouse — certainly nothing you'd be able to hum years down the line after hearing the chorus once. But then again, this was never the aim of Marlango, because the low-key, relaxed atmosphere is the record's actual selling point, and the vibe is created through subtle but engaging means — plenty of tunes sport a brass section, there's a waltz, and a dash of old feel-good dance rhythms, as well as some very nice background drum loops and dynamic rock moments that may even recall Death Cab for Cutie, though briefly.

Taking their name from an obscure Tom Waits reference, the pair drew heavily on dark, brooding recording artists and filmmakers like David Lynch and Björk for inspiration. Before coming together to record their demo in 1998, Watling had made a name for herself on the jazz and soul scene in Madrid. Her counterpart, Pelayo,...
