iTunes Review

Michelle Branch put her adult alternative career on the back burner to join with her songwriter friend and backing singer Jessica Harp. They formed The Wreckers in late 2005 and soon delivered an outstanding country pop album in Stand Still, Look Pretty. Sounding like equal parts Dixie Chicks and Sheryl Crow, their debut went gold shortly before their first single "Leave The Pieces" was Grammy-nominated for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.  Before that, "The Good Kind" appeared on One Tree Hill and the show's compilation soundtrack. The song's chorus climbs with heavenly harmonies woven so closely together that it sounds like Branch and Harp are blood siblings. The title track is a beautifully moody dirge stripped down to muted rhythms, threadbare acoustic picking, stark piano notes, and lyrics musing on trying to stay composed in the public eye during an emotional meltdown. "My, Oh My" is easily the most country sounding tune here. Twangy instruments, a roadhouse shuffle and a good narrative make it stand out from the rest which come off more like contemporary radio pop with rootsy instruments — not like that's a bad thing.

Indigo Girls Watch Out!

At 50, I'm almost too old to enjoy Michelle Branch, but I have a few of her solo efforts on my Ipod. I was looking around ITunes when I stumbled upon The Wreckers. The combo with Jessica Harp is a great match. The vocals are strong and the harmonies are perfect. This is "country" music in the same way Lucinda Williams is country--there's a few twangy guitars and some rural themes, but the music has alternative, rock, and folksy elements. While not as sophisticated as the Indigo Girls, these two have the potential to write as solidly as Indigo's while also straddling the pop world enough to sell songs they'll play on the radio. I am amazed this group hasn't received more airplay and publicity. If I were 25 rs old, looks alone would get my attention. But the music is what counts, and this debut effort is a good one. Buy the album, spread the word.

the wreckers are 0ld news..

i think they are pretty much over with.. they only had one good song and at the cma awards and everywhere else that is the only song they ever sung & it is leave the pieces.. they better get some new and better songs or they done with...
