Working on a solo album in 2003, songwriter Dean Wareham, the founder of Galaxie 500 and Luna, reached out bandmate Britta Phillips from Luna for help.

The two soon formed their own duo, sketching out a melodic, sexy sound that took its cues from Serge Gainsbourg and Lee Hazlewood.

They doubled their efforts after Luna broke up in 2005 and married each other one year later, all the while continuing to tour and release new material.

Fans of Luna should be quick to embrace the new direction Dean & Britta have taken (as should lovers of witty and well-arranged pop) on their second full lenght Backnumbers.

It takes the best parts of Luna, adds some emotional depth and some surface glitter, and ends up being the best thing either Wareham or Phillips has done for a long while.

By the way, the record is produced by famous Bowie producer Toni Visconti. For fans of Lou Reed, Galaxie 500, Luna, Lee Hazlewood/Nancy Sinatra Sealed black vinyl, with padded inner and with lyrics, pressed on 140g at Optimal.
