Tanglewood Numbers

B+

Cofounded by Pavement’s Stephen Malkmus but largely a showcase for fellow ironic aesthete-in-arms David Berman, the Silver Jews return after a four-year hiatus (and Berman’s drug-fueled suicide attempt) with Tanglewood Numbers, 10 charming ditties about depression. Twanging guitar lines tangle with lush strings and the saccharine harmonies of Berman’s wife, Cassie, while her hubby drolly intones poignant yet playful lines like ”I’d rather live in a trash can/Than see you happy with another man.”
