Sometimes you just need a hug. And sometimes you just need that hug to come in the form of a collaboration between two beloved guitar-wielding musicians. With the weather getting cooler and the nights getting longer, Lotta Sea Lice is the perfect record to put on with a cup of tea and a blanket in your lap. Let Courtney and Kurt (Kurtney, if you will) soothe you from within. While they aren’t breaking new ground with this record, they are clearly having a blast working together. They take turns covering each others’ songs (“Outta the Woodwork” is Courtney’s and “Peepin’ Tom” is Kurt’s) and even the video for “Over Everything” has them lip-synching each other’s lines. At times the record feels like it’s missing a little umph that would make it feel more special than it is, but if you’re looking for something to hang out with, then this is a good choice.
