Now hear this: ‘The Long Surrender’ by Over the Rhine
The husband-and-wife duo known as Over the Rhine –– Linford Detweiler and Karin Bergquist –– released their latest album, “The Long Surrender,” which is finally earning the Ohio couple deserved praise. Bergquist’s soaring, ethereal alto vocals over Detweiler’s haunting piano results in sound as much folk as jazz or pop, soulful and immediate. “All My Favorite People (Are Broken)” is one of the most poignant, as its title chorus depicts how people must be resilient to survive. – Jay N.
