Had William Faulkner or Cormac McCarthy turned their creative impulses toward musical composition, the result might very well have been something akin to Munly & The Lee Lewis Harlots. Often described as, 'a thinkin' man's country music,' Munly's wide vocal range, from a low bass to a high soprano, on top of the Harlot's dark, often sensuous string arrangements make for a unique sound that remains long after the music stops. From the dirge-like despair of "Jacob Dumb," the almost frenetic ditties like "Of Silas Fauntleroy's Willingness to Impress the Panel", to what seems to be a classic, "Big Black Bull Comes Like A Caesar," the creative depth and range is at once challenging and invigorating. One can't help but have the distinct feeling that these songs were heart wrenchingly conceived and crafted. An impressive marriage of musical arrangement and instrumentation with jaw-dropping lyrical storytelling, Munly & The Lee Lewis Harlots is altogether an intoxicating, seductive musical experience.
