Spelled in Bones
Frontman Eric Johnson (formerly of Chicago indie-rock faves Califone) certainly pens a pretty ditty on Spelled in Bones. But with his infectious melodies set to some seriously nonsensical lyrics, you’ll wonder if there’s a deeper point you’re missing while your toes involuntarily groove in your shoes. Hey, don’t get us wrong, groovin’s nice. It’s just hard for us not to wish this album had a little more meat on its Bones.
