Love and Theft have enjoyed hits with "Angel Eyes" and "Runaway." - the

The album from Stephen Barker-Liles and Eric Gunderson features largely acoustic arrangements.

"In some ways, we've played it safe in the past, and I think we're over that now," Barker-Liles observes. "I don't mind that songs like 'Whiskey On My Breath' may be a little controversial because they're honest, and I think that they'll make people think about how they feel about life."

Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home – Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home.
