Amoeba Review

When Ben Chasny of Six Organs of Admittance and Donovan Quinn of Skygreen Leopards announced their musical partnership as New Bums, you knew the result would be something special. And that’s certainly what you get with Voices in a Rented Room. The two musicians have made beautiful sunlit folk songs that sound like the wind just picked them off of a tree, floating effortlessly yet immaculately made. Though it’s ostensibly a folk record, the guitarwork here is stunning, never more so than on opener “Black Bough.” These aren’t just flowery love songs, either, with clever, funny songs like “Your Girlfriend Might Be a Cop” and “Your Bullshit,” which pair witty lyrics with delicate melodies that recall forefathers like T. Rex and Big Star (especially the latter group’s haunted Third/Sister Lovers album, on songs like “Sometimes You Crash”). For a couple of so-called bums, Chasny and Quinn have made a terrific record with Voices in a Rented Room.
