About this item

"You & Me" finds the enigmatic quintet in predictably moody form with fourteen tracks of fearsome ingenuity featuring their trademark clanging guitar, their spooked keyboards and rolling drums. The music has a chaotic, drunken ebb and flow which hints at some spontaneous outpouring of musical grief but the reality is anything but; "You & Me" was painstakingly pieced together over two years in two cites - NYC and Philadelphia - and part of that meticulous construction was to make the album sound like a rock'n'roll record with depth and warmth and - uniquely for this notoriously challenging outfit - an uplifting mood to accompany the downtrodden chords.
