Our Year by Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison
Released: May 2014
Label: Premium Records
The married neo-traditionalist couple's second real album together opens with a matched, harmonica-spiked pair: a strummed shuffle where Robison portrays a young man escaping Louisiana for a Texas job against Dad's wishes, followed by a number Willis coos more vaguely, about employment prospects in Detroit succumbing to factory closings. The rest feels breezy-to-drowsy. Seven-year ache "Shake Yourself Loose" manages the most marital friction. "Anywhere but Here" offers more youthful restlessness. And Jeannie C. Riley, Statler Brothers and Zombies covers stake out boundaries of taste.
