THE SILVER JEWS
Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea
Release Date: 9th June 2008
Label: Drag City
Website: http://www.silverjews.net
http://www.myspace.com/silverjews/


A new Silver Jews record so soon! What have we done in life to earn it? Just living is enough. Here’s your guided tour to the guided tour that is LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, LOOKOUT SEA.

All a-sweat and working hard, rumbling with terror and humility like old Johnny Cash, David Berman is once again our tour guide into the void, pointing out spots where some dreams died and other candy-colored conceits were conceived. Almost alone out front at the top of “What Is Not But Could Be If,” he’s joined by the band (Jews vets Cassie Berman, Tony Crow, Brian Kotzur, Peyton Pinkerton and William Tyler), wafting in as if from next door before kicking the lights out. Their opening trot deceives us into fantasies of easing into Berman’s latest head bath. But no dice — D.C.’s got a head of steam and smoke, as evidenced by the antic pistol-pumping rhymes n’ rhythms of “Aloysius, Bluegrass Drummer.”

Ears thus cauterized, “Suffering Jukebox,” and “My Pillow is the Threshold” strike us as the latest and most formal Silver Jews entries into the realm of the Chart-Worthy Song. Inspirational line: “what looks like sleep is really hot pursuit.” But don’t ignore the wide-hearted power of the chorus “Strange Victory, Strange Defeat” or the ear-pleasuring chime of “Open Field,” (a Maher Shalal Hash Baz cover!) which will recall to old-timers their carefree days of R.E.M. fandom before the rest of the world knew, or cared — or didn’t care anymore. The days of ‘80s-’90s flavour are aflame again in these tunes!

“San Francisco B.C.” is the centerpiece of the penultimate part of the climax of LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, LOOKOUT SEA. A dramatic panorama of music history is on epic display behind a tale of dovetailing fates featuring the ominous appearance of Mr. Games — a Merry Pranksters version of “Street Hassle,” if you will. Regardless, history is longer than we think. Classic Bermanisms signal our arrival into “Candy Jail,” an institution overflowing with assorted titular sweets as well as a few bitter treats too. Suddenly the sky is available overhead, as the breeze ruffs our hair and “Party Barge,” is launched. It’s back to a state of nature for the finale, and with our idyll gritting savory between our teeth, along with all other human failings intact, we swing back to the jungle, waving goodbye to D.C. and his bunch, edified, emulsified, intensified, stronger and ready. Uncanny! Excellent!



POINTS OF INTEREST
+ LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, LOOKOUT SEA is the all-new sixth album from Silver Jews and first since 2005’s TANGLEWOOD NUMBERS.

+LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, LOOKOUT SEA was played by the Jews who toured the world in 2005 and 2006: David and Cassie Berman, Tony Crow, Brian Kotzur, Peyton Pinkerton and William Tyler. They’re gonna tour the world again for LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, LOOKOUT SEA.

+The cover for LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, LOOKOUT SEA is “The Lure of Paris #27,” painted by Stephen Bush.

yeah, the numbers on the machine are pretty insignificant as we sell online, with PLUGD, ticketmaster etc, so we pretty much just leave them alone
