Das zweite Album des Ehepaares JinJa Davis und Grant Birkenbeuel aus Chicago, das Debüt brachte es gar zum „Americana Album Of The Month“ im Mojo.


“While theyžve settled comfortably into the Americana niche, Utah Carol donžt fit its stereotyp

theyžre certainly not ashamed of their country twang, but they donžt write painfully sincere songs about factory closings and windblown ghost towns either. Their approach is heavy on American nostalgia, but itžs more of a governing aesthetic than a specific set of sonic cues. Song titles like ūūSilver Space Rocketūū, ūūSoda Fountainūū and ūūMr. Rogersūū hint at a definite fondness for the tail end of Atomic Age America - a time when futuristic concepts were tempered by cultural naivete and multi-generational camping trips still seemed like a pretty cool way to spend a vacation. In Utah Carolžs America, musical variety is the spice of life. Comfort... offers a little bit of everything, from the subdued country-pop of ūūMisfitsūū to the straightforward and catchy jangle of the aforementioned ūūSilver Space Rocketūū. ūūSee the Sunūū gives an offhanded nod to proto-psychedelic sixties pop, and ūūAngelūū energizes its country sing-along with Esquivelian hi-fi sound effects. The thoroughly modern ūūSoda Fountainūū, with its looped percussion, rests comfortably next to the traditional, gospel-tinged, banjo-pluckinž ūūPromised Landūū. ūūNellieūū appropriates seductive jazz rhythms, and ūūThe Way of the Buffaloūū sounds like an application for Elephant Six membership, carefully designed to get a ūūthumbs upūū from Ladybug Transistor and Neutral Milk Hotel.” (Splendidzine)
