3Sirens Music Group
Producer: Dan Molad
If lovers make the sweetest sounds, Alyssa and Doug Graham strengthen that truth. For the Americana-focused couple’s eponymous release, they concocted fresh versions of old songs plundered from their catalog, consciously arranging each track in a manner counter to its original. Despite this, every track comes across as sorrowfully nostalgic. Crying in your beer is either cathartic or dispiriting, depending on one’s frame of mind. Exercise discretion before pressing play.
