Overview

Brother and sister duo Judd & Maggie deliver sweetly emotional, delicately crafted pop on their debut album Subjects. Produced by Beck drummer Joey Waronker and his father, legendary producer Lenny Waronker, Subjects is a low-key, but ear-catching release with flourishes of folk, indie rock, and country that brings to mind nothing less than a canny mix of the Sundays and Fleetwood Mac. Primarily featuring Maggie's crystalline lead vocals, Judd also takes a few turns at the mic, showcasing his smooth, folky croon. Although the band itself is usually a duo, they expand the lineup here to include percussion by Joey Waronker as well as guitars, horns, and even a string section. The result is beautifully organic and only serves to frame the band's compelling songs.

A young brother/sister team from Maryland are more talented than any ten people. It's not only their singing but their song writing that won me. Their harmonies and lyrics are simple yet true. When this duo sings their voices always complement each other as they take turns on leads. The opening track, "Perfectly," has Maggie in the lead asking "Is this the good beautiful and true...."backed by Judd's guitar. She offers a poignant lament in "One Year Past 20" - "I'm already one year past 20 with two broken hearts/Maybe one you could restart." Judd's voice comes to the fore in "Late Hour," which reflects the album's title, "Subjects" as it's about people: There are two kinds of people/They both spin a tale/Complex as a web/Or straight as a nail." Both voices are strong, individual, yet always enhancing each other. Together, perfectly matched, the voices are powerful, incredibly harmonized. It would be impossible to pick a favorite among these 12 songs. Adding to the sound is the terrific drumming of Joey Waronker and Justin Meldal-Jonson's fine bass. Enjoy! - Gail Cooke
