Shana Levy, late of the band Irving, is the songwriter and singer for Let's Go Sailing, a five-piece outfit that also features bassist Nikki Monninger of Silversun Pickups.
Levy's breathy vocals drip with melancholia on “All I Want from You is Love,” as Tanya Haden's cello playing deepens the emotion. Levy includes an occasional cheery number like “Icicles,” but this is mostly depressed stuff.
Depressed though, in a comforting way; Levy's delivery is very personal, like she's singing a lullaby to a child or whispering in a loved-one's ear. Everybody can use a little “it'll be alright” attitude once in awhile, and Let's Go Sailing offers a pleasing way to take that medicine.
