Winter Family Surrounds Us With the Enigma of Red Sugar

This is a difficult album to assess, as much bleak spoken word poetry as dark supporting chords and vacant melodies, political message, mystery. In English, Hebrew, and French.  I think I love it, I know I can't turn it off. O'Barr, this is the opposite of the happy tunes you've spent your life seeking, and I believe you will adore it, because it shows that the limit of our limitations have faded, and our conception of music as music is falling away. The album is Red Sugar, another progression for the duo called Winter Family.
