    The fourth album by Madder Rose, HELLO JUNE FOOL, continues in the direction of the group's previous release, TRAGIC MAGIC. Throughout, a soulful bearing mixes equally with psychedelia. "You Remember" evokes Curtis Mayfield at a slower tempo, but with singer Mary Lorson's vocals floating over the groove like an undulating cloud. Billy CotT has had a clear vision for the band since the outset, and it's remarkable to see the evolution that has occurred over the eight years of Madder Rose's existence. As guitarist, primary songwriter, and producer he seamlessly blends the band's contrasting elements into a unique whole. The addition of violins and horns is magical and unobtrusive. The songs by Lorson add a folkish element to the set. Full of subtle tensions, the songs are strongly supported by a rhythm section steeped in slow and sultry rhythm and blues.

  • Critic Reviews
    Alternative Press (11/99, p.110) - 3 out of 5 - "...Madder Rose singer Mary Lorson clearly proves that she is's greatest strength....her voice shines through the surrounding haze like the sun on a cloudy winter's day."
    Mojo (Publisher) (9/99, p.102) - "...a folkier, country-rock sound, and it suits them....Lo-fi introspection of the narcotic kind."
