CD Review: Alone by the Morning After Girls

The Morning After Girls – Alone
Last year Australia’s The Morning After Girls, led by Sacha Lucashenko and Martin B. Sleeman relocated to New York – this year they released their debut LP, Alone. Its title track glistens, as does the album as a whole. The vocals and guitars are alluringly gentle throughout each song and when they need to move into somewhat harder and faster modes, such as in To Be Your Loss, it’s always an easy switch. The stretchy guitar in Tomorrow’s/Time is especially beautiful. There’s emphasis in these songs that elaborates moments in a way rarely heard – You Need to Die’s You need to die/ so the rest of me can peacefully survive – could be kind of spooky until you realize it’s a release of pain, along with fast tambourines and guitars
