Fascination

The fourth album by this Austin-based multinational trio (singer and bass player Carol Young and multi-instrumentalist Kym Warner are native Australians, while fiddler Eamon McLoughlin hails from the U.K.) finds The Greencards discovering ever more spare and spellbinding ways to say more with less. Fascination telegraphs its melodies deliberately and patiently, creating a quietly confessional tone well suited to Carol’s intimate vocal approach and Jay Joyce’s tastefully restrained production. The mood is broken only by the frisky mid-album instrumental “Little Siam,” whose buoyancy of spirit seems to lift the sad songs surrounding it a little closer to the sunlight.
