Death Vessel Nothing is Precious Enough for Us · Jamey Johnson That Lonesome Song · Trapt Only Through The Pain...

Contrary to what you might assume given its moniker, Death Vessel is actually quite cheery. Acoustic folk set to a slow gallop and held together by the pitter-patter of guitar strings is a wee bit eerie but hardly the stuff of nightmares. Lead singer Joel Thibodeau's falsetto beckons you, and there's something quaint and old-timey about the band's approach. Perhaps it's the frequent influx of banjo, mandolin and lap steel, which are put to use without overpowering the mostly quiet aesthetic. Relaxing, but not at all bland, Nothing is Precious Enough for Us is a luminous and altogether charming record that acknowledges melancholy without letting it win. (SM)
