Style: Sparkly modern pop; compare to The Bird & The Bee, Cat Power, The Shins

Top Tracks: "Time And Time Again," "So Good to Have a Friend," "Get It Together"

Listening to this new album by Waterdeep, there's a sense that Lori and Don Chaffer have spent the year or so since their last release absorbing the sounds coming from modern indie pop artists. Sunshine has an autumnal glow touched with the warm pulse of acoustic guitars that helps buoy the gentle motion of the married couple's lovely vocals. That said, the album feels more focused on personal triumphs and human relationships than a connection with God. But the Chaffers know that it's in those small beautiful moments that you often find yourself feeling closer to the Almighty, and that essence shines out even if they don't call your attention to it.
