Overview

The centerpiece of Mike & Ruthy's The NYC EP is "My New York City," a song where they expanded an unused Woody Guthrie lyric and set it to lilting new original music. To accompany this delicate success, the duo recorded five new songs -- three written by Michael Merenda, one by Ruth Ungar, one by Lillian Green -- and recorded them in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the epicenter of the new millennium hipster universe, but The NYC EP harks back to an earlier New York, the one where Dylan traveled in the footsteps of Guthrie. "My New York City" is the gentlest thing here -- "Raise Your Glasses High" is sweet but propulsive -- and the enthusiastic throwback suits Mike & Ruthy well.
