“With Love & Misery, Sinners & Saints singer/guitarist Perry Fowler and bassist/multi-instrumentalist Mark Baran craft an album so rollicking, tuneful and affable that it's easy to forget just how serious they are. With sonic signifiers like the good-timey chug of The Faces' "Ooh La La" and the acoustic blues swing of John Mayall, Love & Misery is a stealth album, wrapping heartsick-yet-hopeful concerns in the elastic snap of rootsy arrangements and in songwriter Fowler's good humor. The LP could well be a bookend to the Louvin Brothers' Tragic Songs of Life, with Fowler's and Baran's close-yet-distinct harmonies echoing the Louvins', coupling soaring sweetness with the twist of a pocket knife. Yet Sinners & Saints' gorgeously lovelorn songs of loss, transience and transcendence gladly embrace heartbreak as the price of being human.”
