Songwriter Matt Marque is a freshman in more ways than one. He's a kid, and has no idea of what to leave out of a song. Add to this the fact that he's got a voice that makes Will Oldham sound like Pavarotti, and the total means that this first offering fails, right? Wrong. Marque's voice takes some getting used to, but his songs don't. His instinct for lyrically sensual pop excess is both refreshing and classic. With help from ubiquitous cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm, Michael Krassner, and Wilco's Glenn Kotche, Marque crafts broken and wistful love songs as only an innocent can. His melodies are sophisticated and loose-ended. The tempos are all slow 4/4 or waltzes, but the ragged, dreamy textures of his melodic sensibilities redeem them from stasis. Marque's pop esthetics make themselves felt most deeply on the forlorn " Here We Are" and the head-over-heels obsession in "Unknown Flowers On Your Dress." This is a woolly little record that gets high marks for honesty and an unadorned yet elegant presentation, and for the poet behind the words. ~ Thom Jurek
