Album Review

Ivy's Dominique Durand and Andy Chase hold up their elegant indie pop stride for just a moment so that Paco's foxy strut can catch up. This Is Where We Live is a rock record.

Durand's sophisticated vocal style couldn't be any more clear and crisp, so the dynamic that is This Is Where We Live is fully fashioned with temptation and mystery, and free of Ivy's classic pop sweetness.

Hampton, a former Dischord D.C. punk, had been doing his own score and soundtrack work, while Maurer had engineered albums by the likes of Hem, GrooveLily, and Ivy's sister band, Fountains of Wayne. The latter also frequented the same New York City neighborhoods as Ivy, so bumping...
