Longwell is simply two friends singing about life. Isn't that pretty much the basis of what a band originated as? A folky album based mostly on guitar strums and simple drum patterns, All The Streets Look The Same From The Air may be difficult to enjoy at first, but once the vocals become tolerable, it instantly becomes great. There is quite a bit of Elliott Smith in the band's music, especially stylistically. The album flows smoothly between the styles of songs, as in the pairing of the electric "How Nice To Hear You" and "Self-Defense Mechanism" right into the acoustic "Flares" and "Intentions". Longwell deserves plenty of respect, and as the band matures even further, underground popularity could be in the band's future. Stream and download the album for free on their Bandcamp page here.
