...And The Family Telephone
Though ...and the Family Telephone is the product of many hands, it's still the work of just one heart. Just as he's been doing for three years, Michael Nau put his heart into the new record. Nau's lyrics call to mind Dylan or Nilsson ghostwriting for Margo Guryan, all well accompanied by a range of upbeat instrumentation. Trumpets blare overtop jangly acoustic guitar, then both are laid out as a perfect blanket for Nau's vocals.
