Fiction Family (ATO Records)

The first release from Jon Foreman of Switchfoot and Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek proves that two singing heads are better than one. The album takes the folk instruments of Nickel Creek, including a ukulele on the lovable, almost vaudevillian "Look for me Baby," and adds Switchfoot's up-tempo beats and gusto. "Throw it Away" is another standout, starting with a stark guitar riff that builds to the end with a second guitar buzzing like a sitar, strings and eventually a pump organ. This album is superior to anything these musicians have done with their respective bands and is a great example of what happens when musicians from different genres collide.
