SYNDICATE

SilverJewsLookouSound: David Berman’s deep, weathered and twangy baritone once again narrates a few more oddball American tales. Lookout Mountain is definitely brighter and more hopeful than the last Silver Jews album (2005’s Tanglewood Numbers) as it jumps from breezy alt country to jangly roots rock to quirky indie rock, and Berman’s wife Cassie frequently chimes in with spunky background vocals. They do, naturally, leave some room for a couple mellower and more despondent tunes.
Heavy Rotation track: “We Could Be Looking for the Same Thing”
Medium Rotation tracks: “Suffering Jukebox”; “San Francisco B.C.”; “Aloysius, Bluegrass Drummer”
Recommended: There’s nothing too surprising or exceptional on Lookout Mountain, but it is another quality, consistent effort from the grizzled veterans.
