the babies singer & woods bassist channels classic ‘60s pop, dylan introspection,  funky arrangements & hauntingly intimate americana on his touching homage to new York city.

‘Harlem River’ features 8 interweaving tales of tragedy & misfortune; a series of desperate characters playing out their dramas with the city as backdrop. the sprawling title track has a creepy, nocturnal feel that conjures the lively detachment of city nights, filled with surreal drama, dark corners & viscerally bleak moods. ‘slow train’ adds jazzier inflections to its melancholy atmosphere, the sound of dejected grey days, nostalgia & deep, soul searching ennui, adding the longed-for ray of sunlight in the hopeful choruses. ‘reign’ rolls to the chug of delta blues, sounding like a raw vintage 78 with rolling drums & wailing harmonica while the slide guitars & close mic’d guitars of ‘the dead they don’t come back’ add to its tender Americana rumination.
