Pete Krebs' often detuned indie Folk Rock is organically comprised of the best songwriting elements. High plains drifting country leads a la David Roback weave in and out of intimately whispered vocal harmonies and heartbreaking lyrics. Krebs' second album Western Electric, was produced by tunesmith Elliott Smith. Much like Smith, Krebs' songs reflect on love gone bad without reverting to simple "woe is me" shortcuts. Although many of his lyrics are a bit obscure and fragmented, they still convey a helpless desperation that is beautifully expressed.
