Tracklist: The Bookhouse Boys - With You

On their 2008 debut the Bookhouse Boys were a Sergio Leone house band, overstaffed Lynchian surf twanging menace and dual vocal battles. On June's second album Tales To Be Told it's been reined in a little but still sounds like the theme to an unmade dustbowl western noir. Paul Van Oestren and Catherine Turner wrap themselves around each other, spaghetti western brass warms up deep in the background and widescreen production do the grand dramatics proud. Someone get John Hillcoat onto it.
