Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

Sarah Scott and Jonathan Kochmer are Two Loons for Tea.

This album takes you on a techno, pop, rock, alternative journey. The songs could be classified as any of the above. Sometimes dreamy and ambient, sometimes trip hop. But always– great melodies, Sarah’s gorgeous voice and Jonathan and the band’s lovely instrumentation.

The title track “Looking for Landmarks” is soothing and makes me want to close my eyes and slow dance while holding a martini in one hand and a cigarette in the other. In fact, there are a quite a few songs on this recording that have that affect on me.

“This Mortal Rodeo” is a very cool song as well. It’s got a strong beat and her voice is layered quite nicely.

” Blue Suit” stands out not only because it’s little different from others on the disc but it’s also a very catchy “radio friendly” song.

Think Portishead, Bjork, and Radiohead and you’ll start to get the idea.

This is great mood music. If the mood you’re trying to set is swoonful and sexy.
