The Posies
In Case You Didn't Feel Like Pluggin In (Casa Recordings)

By: Alex Steininger

If you liked the Posies brand of rock than you'll be in for a shock when you hear In Case You Didn't Feel Like Pluggin In. Though a shock may be exactly what you need. Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow get the intimacy, honesty, and fragility pouring out of every song with ten well-crafted songs that only involve the acoustic guitars, their voices, and the audiences.

Recorded live, In Case You Didn't Feel Like Pluggin In is as raw and passionate as they come. Their voices feel as if they've experienced everything they're singing about and that they know what they're talking about, which is essential in music, especially music this stripped down. Whereas a lot of solo acoustic performers you can pick apart their songs because they're either too flimsy or fake, The Posies pull it off without a hitch. I'll give it an A.
