The musicians back Jon Rauhouse on originals with the same vintage feel as the band’s cover of “Am I Blue” while the album takes an audio snapshot with “Pictures of Hawaii”, lazily glides on dream-like melodies with “Insomnia”, offers a Latin mood for “Baritone Song”, and plucks at notes to structure “Tar Paper Shack”.
