Merry Peers: Merry Peers

Read "Merry Peers" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


The collective name under which Brad Henkel and Yoshiko Klein operate suggests that the duo's debut release is a record filled with jolly songs about inconsequential things (or that it's a tribute to the Grand Slam winning French tennis professional, Mary Pierce).
