The Gypsy Moths
The Gypsy Moths (White Rose Media)

By: Mark A. Lawrence the IV

This wonderful self-titled first effort for this Portland Oregon based duo, whose songbird vocals float atop the base of duel guitars, shows both talent and heart. With beautiful songs like "Grey Sky" built on image inducing lyrics woven by the combination of Meredith Cushing and Raina Rose's vocals. An album you appreciate most when you can take the time to devote an attentive listen, maybe sipping the first cup of coffee on a Sunday morning. What you find is a wonderful collection of songs including the softly spoken ingenuity of "Every Love Song" and the more rambunctious and politically conscience "The Funk." The Gypsy Moths have a sound that mixes styles like Patty Griffin, Sarah Harman, and Ani Difranco, with their strong emphasis on fleshed out song writing and beautiful, if simple, instrumental phrasing. This CD hopefully marks the first step toward a bright future for this talented musical team. A future I look forward to witnessing cause not only is there great skill and artistic vision between these two but also great opportunity for growth, providing for the greatest of possible outcomes.
