  • Summary: The band consists of former Luscious Jackson keyboardist Vivian Trimble and Breeders bassist Josephine Wiggs, who previously teamed up on another Lucscious Jackson side project, The Kostars (Wiggs produced their one album).
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. Very pretty music that need not be kept in the background.
  2. :?q:,ails is much better than a collaboration between a former Luscious Jackson keyboardist and a former Breeders bassist has any right to be.... the surprise derives from the convincing Gallic pop-meets-Brazilian tropical-meets-American prairie blend.
  3. Although it is never overpowering, Dusty Trails is too well crafted to be reduced to mere background music.
  4. 70
    Wiggs and Trimble do a fantastic job recreating the feel of classic soundtracks of the '60s and '70s... The only shame is that it runs out of steam a little towards the end.
  5. Too often it sounds only half completed...
  6. If few of these tracks could be called great, there aren't any terrible ones either-- the entire thing floats along nicely on a snug bed of cotton.
  7. Minus a couple tracks on the release (including the very Luscious Jackson-esque "Roll The Dice"), this release is more like the female version of Air or Stereolab-lite.
