The beauty of Mountain Man's three voices singing together will seduce many listeners on Magic Ship. Unaccompanied human expressions have a powerful impact when artfully combined.

Throughout I Need to Start a Garden, she speaks of improvement. She strives to be good, but she's honest about the difficulty human life brings forth. Humility is a virtue. Her songs display this, and it's refreshing to be sure.

The boygenius EP marks a stunning release from three singular artists. Hearing them integrate their particular gifts would be worth a listen alone, but the performances are so remarkable that the disc's background becomes trivial.
