Released 02 October 2012.
Originally intended to be a mix-tape with new duo arrangements of songs written and previously recorded by Dan Costello as a solo artist, “Plus One” took on new life, and became comprised of new originals, covers and those old songs redone. The album reflects the band’s 2012 live setup – Rachel on synth bass and drums, and Dan on electric guitar. The folk songs are generally loud, and the rock songs are generally louder, all with a heart of gold. The album could be moving in reverse – the newest song is first, and the oldest, a cover of “When The Rain Comes Down” by Bob Devlin, is last. Are they reverting to children or is the world ending or what?
