Shoebox Letters' new cd, Love Sick Town, is out and available for purchase at cdbaby.com, amazon.com and itunes among other places. It is also available for purchase at Music Millennium in Portland, Oregon.
Love Sick Town is Shoebox Letters' 11th independently released cd. Besides founding members Dennis Winslow (guitar-vocals) and David Stricker (bass), Love Sick Town features Loren Lee on vocals and Susan Lowery on vocals and as a co-writer on a handful of tracks. Jim Fisher chips in with harp on two tracks and Greg Paul adds slide guitar and papoose. Love Sick Town was recorded in Portland, Oregon by Greg Paul and Bob Stark.
Love Sick Town is a back to basics album. Gone are the mandolins, steel guitar and accordion that marked Buckle Up and The Road Not Taken. In their place is an emphasis on a simpler approach anchored by acoustic and electric guitars played by Winslow and Stricker's melodic bass. What hasn't gone away are the hook laden songs. Take a trip to Love Sick Town, you won't be disappointed.
