Product description

Amazon.co.uk

Frequently--and rather unfairly--dismissed as a Pavement side-project due to the occasional involvement of that band's ex-vocalist Stephen Malkmus, the Silver Jews have long struggled to find their own voice in the American alternative-rock firmament. With their fourth album, Bright Flight, however, they may just have found it. This time, Malkmus is nowhere to be seen--off making arch pop mischief with his own band the Jicks--and David Berman, the soft, laconic voice behind the Jews has found the guts to really shine alone. Backed by a country band, built partly of Nashville old hands, this is surely the band's most conventional--and consistently listenable--album to date: 10 bright-eyed pedal-steel rambles through a slightly ragged, twisted modern Americana. Berman is on fine form, tossing wry rhyming couplets such as "I wish I had a thousand bucks / I wish I was the Royal Trux" into the ether with all the lazy, half-cut charm of Malkmus. His skill goes beyond simple wordplay though--the gorgeous "I Remember Me" is a tragic-comic narrative, where a man proposing to his beloved is flattened by a runaway truck. Many American bands are making records such as Bright Flight nowadays. Few, however, are doing it this well. --Louis Pattison
