Fellow Citizens, a five men and one woman troupe based in Boulder, CO, crafts sepia-toned, folk-bred American beauties - the ageless sort that could have been made in the 1950s, 1970s, or yesterday. "On The Parkway" opens with a grainy recording of an old-school space launch (i.e. Apollo? Major Tom?), hinting the track is as much a departure as a remembrance of things past. The song proceeds with lazy acoustic guitar strums, loose drums, chimes and lush vocal harmonies. It's perfect to listen to while neck-deep in a bubble-bath, traipsing idly in a park, or for any time you need to slow down and soak in life's smells, gestures, and intricacies, deeply and daintily.
