Callers

Fortune

by Sarah Moore

16 September 2008

 

Brooklyn’s Callers have an unstoppable combination going for them: the pairing of Sara Lucas’ hauntingly rich and ambient vocals with Ryan Seaton’s virtuoso guitar playing. Lucas has the timbre and range of Pyeng Threadgill with the slight texture of Norah Jones while Seaton weaves in and out of lead and background, patiently anticipating gaps and stale moments. Lucas’ days of singing in New Orleans are revealed in her jazzy swagger. One way this recording stands out is the dynamic production by Keith Souza (Battles, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah). In this album one can really hear the room itself, as it takes on a personality of its own. Space is used at its fullest potential.
