The Pernice Brothers: Grudge F*** (2006)
Pernice Brothers: Live a Little (EMI) BEST OF ELSEWHERE 2006

The vehicle for Joe Pernice, this band make slightly askew alt.pop and haven't been averse to pulling in orchestration when required.

Where once Pernice made alt.country with his band the Scud Mountain Boys he now nods to Brian Wilson and classic pop of the mid 60s.

In many ways it is unfashionable music because it isn't as alternative as some might like, but this album glows with melodies and often elegantly simple songs.

They also remake the Scud's Grudge F*** to great, emotionally swelling effect and, as always, bizarre lyrics abound.
