Editors’ Notes

The husband-and-wife duo of Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist bought an 1830s brick farmhouse in southern Ohio in the mid-'00s, and they've spent the past few years getting in touch with the past and the present that exists in its rooms and on the acres surrounding them. When they eventually came up for air, they had a double album’s worth of material. Then they recorded it in six days with producer Joe Henry, along with a spirited cover of The Band’s “It Makes No Difference.” Bergquist brings a solemnity to everything she sings, and traces of The Cowboys Junkies feel present in low-key and haunted tracks like "I’d Want You.” The duo's own bluesy edge breaks through the title track and “Gonna Let My Soul Catch My Body.” But mostly this is a spiritual quest, and reflection is the preferred mode—even as storm clouds threaten on “Don’t Let the Bastards Get You Down.”

Customer Reviews


Over The Rhine is creative with their ability to get their music released on their own & we are thrilled & proud to have been a small part of getting this magnificent album produced. Over The Rhine is one of the best bands out there. Music for mature and soulful adults. Do yourself a favor and discover this band if you have never heard them before. Karin has one of the best voices in music and she and Linford are wonderful songwriters. Oh, and go see them live & you will fall in love with Over The Rhine even more.

For the first time in their career I will not be purchasing a OTR album. While it sounds nice and her voice is beautiful the material just doesn't catch fire or toy with my emotions like they always have in the past. Looking forward to their next project.

Just Listened to a Preview over at SoundCloud. Each album evolves and is totally different in sound and style from previous ones…but one thing in common-they are all outstanding and can stand on their own. The mixes on this album are sparse, eclectic and perfect. The Steel guitar intro on "I'd want you' paired with Karen's velvet voice: masterful.

Over the Rhine had already developed a large and intensely loyal following in their native Cincinnati, Ohio before they independently released their first two albums, Till We Have Faces (1991) and Patience (1992). Their music, which they aptly dubbed "post-nuclear, pseudo-alternative, folk-tinged art-pop," is difficult to pigeonhole. They have been compared to 10,000 Maniacs, the Innocence Mission, U2, and Shawn Colvin, but the band's personality seems to owe more to its literary influences (which...
