Overview

The Seattle duo of guitarist Jonathan Kochmer and vocalist Sarah Scott, otherwise known as Two Loons for Tea, gathered another stellar group of musicians for its sophomore release. Once again working with musicians whose credits include King Crimson, Brian Eno, Elton John, and Galactic, Two Loons' Looking for Landmarks is another pristine and intricate collection of soulful alternative rock. The songwriting, while melodic and memorable, also addresses a wide array of musical styles from ambient to funk. Scott's clear voice often sounds something like the Sundays' Harriet Wheeler on a serious Marvin Gaye jag. Complimenting this is Kochmer's guitar and keyboards, which have as much in common with Sam Prekop as the Cocteau Twins' Robin Guthrie. All in all, Landmarks pushes the boundaries of adult alternative pop and should please those looking for something better than the norm.

Two Loons For Tea is back and improving on the stregnths of their first outing with "Looking For Landmarks". With rich, full instrumentation, catchy melodies and beautiful vocals, the Loons have carefully produced an album equally enhanced by bright freshness and deep soulfulness. Vocalist Sarah Scott and multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Kochmer are joined here by an A-list roster of musicians who¿ve earned their stripes with such acts as Fiona Apple, Tori Amos, Macy Gray, Elton John, King Crimson and many more, but the songs are never overshadowed by show-boating. The guests elegantly weave into the musical cloth, building its strength. This is classy album that shuns labeling and is not to be missed. Look for it on many end of the year `best of¿ lists.
