THE ALEX LEACH BAND
“Slip Slidin’ Away”
RECORD LABEL:Mountain Home Music Company
The group’s cover of Paul Simon’s “Slip Slidin’ Away” foregoes the ‘grassy accents of the banjo for carefully crafted, yet utterly natural reading that focuses tightly on the singing of Alex and Miranda Leach. Framed by Leach’s inventive guitar figures and Sexton’s subtle violin, the husband and wife duo reveal Simon’s enigmatic parables with intimate, sympathetic tone and phrasing, making the familiar masterpiece feel as if it’s being heard for the first time.
