Editors’ Notes

Brooklyn's Leah Siegel has teamed up with an experienced band of fellow travelers who, like herself, have been seeking the right musical project. The group is like a throwback to the '60s and early '70s, when albums were sculpted more toward what an artist had to say than assuming that serious projects required long albums. At seven songs in less than a half-hour, Pills from Strangers is just the right length. There are no wasted notes, no filler tracks. Just the best ideas brought to fruition by classical violinist/commercial songwriter Siegel, guitarist Steve Elliot (Shooter Jennings), bassist Tim Luntzel (Rosanne Cash, Loudon Wainwright III), keyboardist/programmer Mendeley Wells, and drummer Brian Wolfe (Sufjan Stevens, David Byrne/St. Vincent). "Good," with its dense keyboard lines and aggressive groove, rocks like modernized new wave pop. "Wave" rambles in its verses only to streamline its chorus to the super-catchy "I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love." "Scarecrow" sounds like PJ Harvey singing over random Tricky tracks that've been stripped for parts; it befits a record produced by Geoff Stanfield, whose credits include Moby.

Customer Reviews

Pills from Strangers - Firehorse

I want to mainline the spirit raging live in this album!!!

"Raw" falls short when describing the sentiments expressed in, and the uniquely unbridled thrill of Leah Siegel's voice. She has a sound that's just got to be heard, and a message we all wanna hear. On the second track of this second album by Firehorse - 'Good' - she lays it plainly in front of the listener - this is a woman who fights like hell for what she believes in.
On 'Any Other Day' she genuinely cuts through the popular fanning of the social flame and in vogue-ness of sexual identity & preferences by reducing the circumstance of love to it's root, 'Couldn't you just care, a little bit more than you would have [any other day]'

For all it's guttural sincerity & soul baring confessional style the album also rocks from track to track. It sounds like your favorite blues/folk/soul artist, set to the beats that move & grove us all. Pick up this album, your Summer will thank you for it!

I'm in love.

Powerful rock. Powerful soul. Heartfelt AND fun. "and so they ran faster" was one of my favorite albums of the last year but this might just top it.

Amazing!

We are the Anchor and we are the wave!
