Most everyone has experienced love as well as heartbreak. The ten songs that form the new WINDY & CARL album are interpretations of those emotions that run the gamut from pain, anger and longing, to warmth, admiration and joy. Started in early 2007 and finished in the spring of 2008 in the midst of some sudden inspiration, these songs are some of the best Windy & Carl have to offer, and a new mark in their always developing sound. The opening track addresses the denial of trouble at home, while the title of “La Douleur” (the war, named after the Marguarite Duras book) is self explanatory. The touching words of “My Love,” a song about the renewal of faith and hope, flows on to the genuine sentiment of “Forever.” The title of the closing track notes the idea that no matter how near or far two lovers are, they still exist on the same plane. This fall, Windy & Carl will have been together for 19 years. And in these sounds you get a sense of what love encompasses, how there can be bliss in any oasis, and trouble in any paradise, the highs and the lows, the reality of time and depth of emotion that go into any relationship that has lasted so long. Long time fans will hear similarities to earlier works, but anyone who listens to Songs For The Broken Hearted will no doubt find emotions they can respond to and identify with. A collection of love songs, whether it be a presentation of love gone wrong or new love in full bloom, the album is an expression of timeless emotion and universal feeling. We have all known love in our lives, and we have all known loss. This is an album that encompasses both and shares those feelings with the world.
