Boomkat Product Review:
Originally released in 2003, this split release finds singer-songwriter Julie Doiron and Okkervil River sounding similarly lo-fi and pared down, marking a time prior to the latter act's ascendancy to the upper echelons of US indie-dom. Doiron is on fine form throughout her six-track contribution, self-accompanied on a nylon-strung guitar and recorded with a simple and intimate mic setup - 'Snowfalls In November' and 'The Songwriter prove especially good. One of her tracks is unlisted and crops up at the end of the record; it's a take on disc-opener 'The Sweetest Eyes (When You Laugh)', recorded with her children acappella, which is just too adorable. Okkervil River kick off with a full band setup waltzing amiably through 'He Passes Number Thirty-Three' and peaking with the excellent 'Your Blackest Coat', laden with some of the casual bombast that came to colour their very fine subsequent releases.
