Bluntly speaking? The "Looking For Landmarks" cd is simply a melodic symphony of wonderfully arranged songs by Two Loons for Tea (aka Sarah Scott and Jonathan Kochmer with a plethora of talents behind them tinkering). Here is tangible proof there is hope for the release of albums filled with blended sounds, melodic tunes, an enchanting voice and musicians that can handle more than one musical style in a song. Bravo.

The Loon duo navigate through world influences on the note, and coast along exotic beats, like Magellan and Cook; while the cd seems to rotate towards a solstice of its own. What a pop-y new-age-y rock-ish find. And this yummy, non-conformist, genre bending, album waits to tickle your aural system.

Track 1, 'Blue Suit,' is the launch of our musical roller coaster of beats, culture-hued notes and flowing lyrics. Track 3, 'Dying for Love,' has sweeping hints of Celtic campfires, aside wandering Costa del Sol street musicians, you've stumbled upon in your memory and the eclectic combo works beautifully. Track 4, 'Blood for Sugar,' has a weak beginning, but before you hit the forward button, forgive the loop in - because once the lyrics begin, it switches gears and becomes quite a grand storytelling yarn, with haunting undertow and delicate vocals. Track 7, 'Shape of Strange,' is just strange - and sometimes that's a good thing. It's like a Shaft-infused Blaxploitation-theme that should play over a Quentin Tarantino scene - if you know what I mean. Though it does sound like Ms. Scott is repeating, "You are a weeble…" Um, production explain yourself! Track 9, 'Emily,' is Goth-y fright night fun, and ironically has the more congruent lyrics of the pieces. Track 11, 'This Mortal Rodeo,' is Kasbah meets the Druids enchanting.

Throughout the album it's Sarah Scott's exquisite vocals that front our fantastic journey through her varying lyrics…while she doesn't stray from "her sound," that's okay because her's is an exceptionally refreshing voice. Jonathan Kochmer, the other Loon, picks up the slack by playing half a dozen instruments, lending to some of Scott's lyrics, and orchestrating all twelve compositions. And this eclectic hodge podge-ing of sounds in song is simply delightful - a musical mind trip you should quickly queue up for. Enjoy.  Buy it
