11-03-2013 // Album: The Oh Hellos - Through the Deep, Dark Valley

Some albums are easy to love, some are hard. Some loves are easy to explain, some are hard. Through the Deep, Dark Valley by The Oh Hellos is easy to love, but hard to explain. Last year I displayed some love for their 4-track EP The Oh Hello's, but this full album is a huge step forward.

What makes The Oh Hellos special is the duo behind it, brother and sister singing together and switching lead vocals on the tracks. Making this an album with different sounds and songs. Perhaps the finest example for that is my favorite song "I Have Made Mistakes". This song is intimate; beautifully sung by Tyler, with Maggie doing 2nd voice.

As you may have noticed, I'm having a little trouble describing my love for this album. Which is weird, because I love it. It shouldn't be hard to declare love on a beautiful album with great songs on it. I've done it before... Yet here I am having a hard time with it. Maybe you should just not care about what I think or write (as you should do most of the time) and listen to the fine songs you've been presented. And if you like what you've heard, get your ass in gear and get yourself a copy.

Or she'll eat you alive..
