Son, Ambulance is a band, but mainly the project of singer song writer Joe Knapp who has in the past collaborated with fellow Saddle Creek artist Bright Eyes. It meanders along in an upbeat, personable way incorporating crazy lyrics ("I remember how we used to talk like swallows in an unborn child's throat") with simple piano and guitar-driven pop songs. Possibly on the too-long side of things, the CD's highlight is on track 8 where sesame Street's "sunny day, kissing the clouds away" chorus blends seamlessly into the happy song. Bliss!
