Vocal duo Charly&Faust and their stalwart backup players show a combination of pluses and minuses. Most promising is “Her,” a calming, soothing, ‘60s psychedelic-folk-influenced tune featuring the singers’ pleasant blend of voices set against jangling folk guitars and tribal drums that deliver a consistent, hypnotic groove. Less enticing is the love-gone-bad song “Asshole,” which despite its amusing line “I gave you my heart, my love, my soul, asshole!” is ultimately too plodding and not very memorable. The band’s deepest, most ambitious composition is “Your Fear”; however, the duo’s appealing vocal blend is not enough to make this ambitious song come together. We urge this band to keep working.
