We’re intrigued by the smart, clever alt-folk band Suborbitals led by a born storyteller who projects plenty of character and wry humor on songs like the sax-moaning “Devil’s Dance Card,” the lurching “Elemental” and especially “Let’s Forget It For A While,” a song that packs love, joy and misery (even suicide) into one consistently catchy package. We hate to inform, however, that this recording, like their others, is sorely lacking a key quality: somewhere in its spare arrangements and flat room tone is a black hole that’s begging to tingle with life by a producer who knows how to enliven a sound mix in a way that is organic and dynamic––with no artificial ingredients.
