One of my favorite characteristics of Grandchildren's music is that it has the ability to shrink you back down to the size of a child and get you to see the world as a bigger and more mysterious place. This most recent album is no exception. The instruments surround you like trees in a forest, and the vocals haunt from above like ghosts telling you stories. Even in the most dark lyrics or bittersweet melodies, there is a uniquely young feeling that this music is so good at capturing. A bit more subdued than earlier albums, but an interesting kind of maturity shows up in Zuni. Each song is a bit of a time capsule, and the diversity of influences really shows through.
