Wow. Susan Levine’s vocals are just perfect on this song about how life, and family life in particular, can be so imperfect. With Doug Kwartler backing her up beautifully a song unfolds that’s full of weary acceptance of the way life goes. Marriages fall apart, second wives aren’t great stepmoms, and all the time the train’s roll by a small town that only knows small town concerns. It’s a beauty – and The Lied To’s have a whole album of such songs – ‘The Lesser of Two Evils‘ – that’s recently been released.
