Morning Ritual's The Clear Blue Pearl is a lush and astonishing album, one that's surprisingly easy to listen to. The Clear Blue Pearl only masquerades as an indie pop album; in reality it's a single composition by local jazz keyboardist Ben Darwish. He's joined by William Seiji Marsh on guitar, Russ Kleiner on drums, and, awesomely, the Shook Twins on vocals. It was only a matter of time before a musical mastermind got those ladies off their back porch, took away their fucking banjos, and set their eerie harmonies to really good music. It has finally happened, and it works. The Clear Beautiful Pearl would be a great album anyway, thanks to its innovative song structures, perfect production, and the fact that, for a concept album, it's miraculously egoless. Still, their beautiful voices keep the wonkier jazz bits down to earth, infusing them with warmth and soul. REBECCA WILSON
