Human Highway, 'Moody Motorcycle' (Suicide Squeeze)

Moody Motorcycle
Critical Mass
Label: Suicide Squeeze

by Jessica Suarez

Human Highway's debut album is summer's last stand. Though it comes from two Canadian over-achievers -- singer-songwriter Jim Guthrie and Islands leader Nick Thorburn -- Moody Motorcycle is indefatigably laid-back. "Let the sun soak through / And do what we want to do," they yawn on "All Day," a strummy number built on a gentle island rhythm. Nearly every track is just as amiably sleep-drunk. The title track gusts in more forcefully, but on the duo's best songs, they harmonize like Simon & Garfunkel shutting their eyes against approaching shades of winter.
