The 6ths

  • Wasps' Nests [London, 1995] **
  • Hyacinths and Thistles [Merge, 2000] *

Consumer Guide Reviews:

Wasps' Nests [London, 1995]
cavalcade of drips ("San Diego Zoo," "Pillow Fight," "Heaven in a Black Leather Jacket") **

Hyacinths and Thistles [Merge, 2000]
Make that 83 love songs-these 14 delicately rendered when you're in the mood, preciously undercut when you're not ("You You You You You," "Waltzing Me All the Way Home"). *
