Lemuria, The Distance is So Big

Lemuria, THE DISTANCE IS SO BIG (Bridge Nine Records)
The third full-length from Buffalo’s aural equivalent of salted caramel is another solid confection that alternates between ambience, dissonance and harmony, with lyrics that likewise straddle cynicism and optimism in a shared voice that’d make Elvis Costello proud. A few overly-twee tracks don’t do permanent damage to the sweet-n-sour balance.
