Only You, another Los Angeles musician, sounds a bit more committed to reversing the clock, drawing a bit more directly on Roy Orbison. "Love Is Making Me Tired" opens with the lyric, "You're the truth/I'm a liar," the only bit of duplicity in a song that packages a wonderfully layered chorus with singer Rachel Fannan's heart-breaking vocal. The pathos lies on the floor somewhere, and the chorus takes each step downward to find it. Fannan is somewhere near the top of the room, backed by those warm and forgotten guitars, wailing into history.
