OTB:

This isn't the spot to lay down odds on the third race. OTB is where Others Talk Back and give you the lowdown on what they've been feeling lately. This one's for the customers.

This is their 19th studio album and it features songs from their Dial-A-Song internet service. You could go on their website and hear a new song every week. "Phone Power" is the third in a series of albums showcasing the Dial-A-Song material. The Giants have shown themselves masters of writing exquisite two or three minutes pop songs. That ability must be inherent in both of their gene pools. On this album, they reel off gem after gem effortlessly. They utilize many different musical styles, from power pop to synth pop, hard rock, electronic and other styles 'Phone Power" is another winner in their 19 album winning streak. For clarification, this is not a children's album. They have also released great kids' albums too.

Last year, k.d. lang reached out to Neko Case and Laura Veirs to get together and create some music. This album is a true collaboration, with each of the performers taking lead vocals on several songs and being supported by the other two. The women create some of the dreamiest harmony vocals heard in a long while. Some of the songs touch on seventies singer-songwriter pop, along with hints of seventies soul. The women are supported by a string section on seven tracks. There is a pronounced autumnal air to the proceedings. But these seasoned performers have made themselves the queens of autumnal pop. It is rare to to have three legendary musicians submerge their pronounced musical identities and create a unique work that is not the work of one, but is really the work of three.
