A diverse and sparse series of songs, most of which revolve around falling out of love and disillusionment with the world in general. Although these themes could lead to Carnival Love being one of the most depressing albums ever, Amy Correia's fragile, singsong voice carries each track gently along, leaving the listener with an unshakable feeling of hope. Reminiscent of Mary Lou Lord or Victoria Williams, her little girl voice belies a worldly brashness and wry knowledge that lends itself well to her sparse poetry. A good first album which will surely lead to even more successful efforts in the future.
To many, owning a motorcycle is the ultimate expression of freedom - an expression that begs to be unique. So, where can you go to forge a one-of-a-kind ride? Welcome to West Coast Choppers and meet metal-forming guru Jesse James, whose talent, unlike his outlaw ancestor, is arc welding with artistry and making chrome sing. Go behind the scenes at Jesse James' workshop and watch as he and his staff design and build six bikes for Daytona's Bike week. It's a pressure-filled labor of love, during which hand-wrought frames, pipes, and gas tanks come together in a blissful union of radical design and cutting edge power. You'll even visit an Easy Riders photoshoot of Jesse James' trademark El Diablo, then travel to Daytona, where the world's greatest bike builders strut their stuff.
