Almost Charlie Tomorrow's Yesterday

Almost Charlie Tomorrow's Yesterday
7
In the three years since The Plural of Yes came out, the two songwriters for Almost Charlie still haven't met face to face. Dirk Homuth writes the music in Berlin, while Charlie Mason contributes the lyrics from NYC, and it works out just fine for them — chances are they talk on the phone occasionally. Not much else has changed either because Tomorrow's Yesterday sounds very much like its predecessor. An awful lot, actually — like it's actually from the same recording sessions and it just took them a few years to get enough money together to release it. The upside is that the songs are still as strong as ever, with lots of nice vocal harmonies and jangly guitars. Homuth keeps things simple and that works to their advantage because the pure peppiness of "Hope Less" and "Man Without A Home" helps overcome any problems with the familiarity of it all.
