About this item

Quite a departure from their "Oh Inverted World" debut. Gone is the 60s Beach Boys / Byrdsian low key production, "Chutes Too Narrow" has a much more updated sound. The same off-kilter songs are still there, but the vocals are brought right up front, and give the whole album a crisp, bright feel, while in the background, guitars jangle and backing harmonies intertwine beautifully.
