"You've got that special kind of sadness / That only comes from time spent in Los Angeles," sings Taylor Goldsmith in the opening moments of the second album by these L.A. folk rockers. Ironically, the pain in these songs stems from time spent on the road, where the balmy Americana bum-outs ("My Way Back Home") and upbeat ramblin' numbers ("How Far We've Come") were written. Though restlessness is the dominant lyrical theme here, Nothing Is Wrong sounds familiar and comforting (see the airy, aching "Fire Away," featuring Jackson Browne).
