If Liela Moss from the Duke Spirit ever had a really sad breakup, got depressed, and recorded the most somber, yet gently hookiest album, ever, it might just sound like Aviette's The Way We Met. (You can hear two of the better songs as the first two tracks on their MySpace page).
Lead singer Holly Munoz has one of those classic melancholic, cigarette-stained voices. When she reaches for, and barely hits, the high notes in the lovely title track, it's like she's parting a curtain to let just a little daylight spill on the noonday demon, and the effect is quietly spine-tingling.
