The Postmarks



Nov 02, 2008 Year End 2008 - Best of 2008 Bookmark and Share

The Postmarks love paper-thin John Barry arrangements and this stop-gap covers album continues that trend. As the album’s title hints, Numbers’ track titles successively ascend. Along the way to the twelfth song, a winking tribute The Pointer Sisters’ “Pinball Number Count” (made popular by Sesame Street), are adorable covers of The Cure’s “Six Different Ways,” The Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Nine Million Rainy Days,” and Blondie’s “11:59.” Many of the tracks are stamped with a heavy-eyed autumnal charm. These are unfussy songs, tailor-made for snuggling up to your significant other on a drizzly
afternoon. (
