Take Her Favour

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide
Take Her Favour, the follow-up to Kentucky Nightmare's 2005 self-released debut, There's Vampires in Them Hills!, is a leap from garage band to still raw but slicker, melodic '80s/'90s college rock '- think Matthew Sweet and Camper Van Beethoven -- messy and charming. The Bloomington, Indiana-based band has undergone a lineup change since their debut, losing bassist Evan Farrell to Rogue Wave, and adding Karen Jensen and David Woodruff on bass and guitar, respectively. Ben Fowler remains on drums, and the soul of the operation is still singer, guitarist, and exclusive songwriter, Simon Moore. As a songwriter, Moore is at his best in the slower and sparser pieces, where melody and harmony take center stage over rock ...

Take Her Favour, the follow-up to Kentucky Nightmare's 2005 self-released debut, There's Vampires in Them Hills!, is a leap from garage band to still raw but slicker, melodic '80s/'90s college rock '- think Matthew Sweet and Camper Van Beethoven -- messy and charming. The Bloomington, Indiana-based band has undergone a lineup change since their debut, losing bassist Evan Farrell to Rogue Wave, and adding Karen Jensen and David Woodruff on bass and guitar, respectively. Ben Fowler remains on drums, and the soul of the operation is still singer, guitarist, and exclusive songwriter, Simon Moore. As a songwriter, Moore is at his best in the slower and sparser pieces, where melody and harmony take center stage over rock swagger. "The Bird That Wouldn't Call," for instance, is a delicious stacked sandwich of melody, vocal harmonies, and interwoven, syncopated guitar lines that never stagnates. "Caroline & I," a Wilco-esque alt-country ballad, has the most mainstream potential on the album ("I'm sick of being broke, confidence is low, I look at Caroline"). It seduces with deceptive simplicity while playing with mixed meters and phrasing. Then, with doses of punk, songs like "Ways of the Gods" and "Money (A Lot)," which channels Suicidal Tendencies, deliver attitude along with, or sometimes at the expense of, craft. Somehow, it all works and the album sounds like a single gritty, punk-pop-infused, alt-country, melody-driven indie band. The secret is Moore, who even at his most irreverent moments can't shed his knack for melody and melodic/harmonic rhythm. As the record's style and tone meander at times, Moore's particular skill set -' replete with welcome rough edges that keep pacing and phrasing off-balance and interesting -' is the cohesive force that makes Take Her Favour distinctive and merit repeated listens.
