Mojave 3: Puzzles Like You (2006)
"Ghost Ship Waiting" is a pop standout, joyously melodic, as is the similar "Breaking The Ice"; opener "Truck Driving Man" even rocks out a bit, the Americana jangle calling to mind SoCal acts like Beachwood Sparks; "To Hold Your Tiny Toes" is practically garage rock, frenetic and dense and suggesting vibes from New Zealand indie bands like the Clean or the Bats; and the title track is another lovely little winner. These are balanced out by a few more lethargic ballads that recall their earlier releases.
It's a sweet gem, though the band's whole discography is worth checking out.
