It’s here and it’s ready! Are you? Omaha’s Denver Dalley fires a barrage of crafty songs with [b]STATISTICS[/b] newest release, [i]Often Lie[/i]. Apparently there is an endless supply of compelling songs in Denver’s front pockets, and his new record, backed by echoing power chords and a voice that is as soothing as it is compelling, proves this yet again. [I]Often Lie[/I] is rife with the musical clatter of hurtling guitars, intermittent electronic splashes, and lyrical disarmament that pops and settles while the CD plays on.

Desaparecidos co-songwriter Dalley delivers the goods here, delicate odes to forgotten radio DJs and loves lost are peppered with electronic flourishes while crushing choruses beautifully butt up against a melancholic wash of breathtaking production. [I]Often Lie[/I] is in many ways the record Dalley has been hinting at since [b]STATISTICS[/b] inception: moving, buoyant, and as revealing a snapshot as any record that has trickled out of the Midwest.
