The latest offering from New York's tuneful, eclectic LD & the New Criticism is a delightful morsel of pop yumminess - a musical amuse-bouche sure to linger in your ear as it momentarily satisfies your hunger, yet still leaving you wanting more. Created as a musical bridge between Tragic Realism, the band's critically-acclaimed 2005 debut, and a new full-length collection the band are currently constructing, Amoral Certitudes is a brief survey of crimes of the heart that has one elegantly-shod foot planted firmly in the fetid grave of romance, and the other in the giddy, carnival-esque Tunnel of Love. LD Beghtol's playful lyrics sing of the unabashed humor and pathos of human amatory relations, even as the swirling musical accompaniment entices you inward and onward to your doom. Or redemption.
