    Norfolk & Western: Adam Selzer (vocals, guitar); Rachel Blumberg (vocals, vibraphone, drums, tambourine, chimes); Peter Broderick (guitar, banjo, violin, percussion, musical saw, Theremin); Tony Moreno (guitar); Jesse Richter (pedal steel guitar); Amanda Lawrence (violin, viola); Nathan Crockett (violin); Heather Broderick (cello); Cory Gray (trumpet, piano); Dave Depper (piano, bass instrument).
    On UNSUNG COLONY Norfolk & Western--essentially a duo consisting of guitarist/vocalist Adam Selzer and drummer Rachel Blumberg and a rotating cast of guest musicians and friends--play like late-period Yo La Tengo in an antique store. Ornate textures combining plucked acoustic guitars and banjos, bowed strings, vibes, and rusty electrics with impeccable percussion touches underscore Selzer's near-whispered melodies, which ponder the inner workings of relationships, solitude, and intimacy.

  • Critic Reviews
    Magnet (p.102) - "[A]nother chapter in songwriter Adam Selzer's exploration of lush, creaky-voiced Americana..."
    CMJ (p.38) - "Selzer keeps his tone ambiguous and leaves every song feeling heartbreaking and beautiful all at once."
