Steve Martin & Edie Brickell
Love Has Come For You - ROUNDER
FILTER Grade: 68%
By Nevin Martell on May 3, 2013
Steve Martin isn’t a new bohemian and Edie Brickell isn’t a wild and crazy guy, but the two part-time musos have nonetheless decided that they should work together. He handles the banjo; she is in charge of the vocals. The resulting tunes strive for a rustic, Appalachian sensibility that never quite seems genuine—more Aunt Jemima than grade-A maple syrup. Precious and self-indulgent, this disc is bound for the sale rack at Starbucks.
