That wouldn't be wrong--just inadequate. Former Blake Babies Jake Smith and Freda Love do lead a group whose music seems at home next to everyone from Matthew Sweet and the Lemonheads to Dwight Twilley and the Raspberries. Yet, taking a cue from their name, the Mysteries set higher sights, delivering a front-porch wisdom that conveys their self-assurance in a simple acoustic strum. Self-important pretensions (sonic or lyrical) are simply not part of the equation.COME CLEAN, the quintet's sophomore turn, evokes images of refreshing, dizzying rides down backwoods roads during the end of spring, the top down and the AM radio blasting Buddy Holly's proclamations of love. Holly is, in fact, the perfect touchstone for the Mysteries--he is present in the melancholy melodies, in Smith and bassist Kenny Childers' rough-hewn harmonies, in the unadorned production and the spare instrumentation. And when these traditional but by no means retro qualities coalesce into a runaway pop success (artistic, not commercial), as they do on the wondrous "Let it Slip," the Mysteries reflect how limiting terms like "guitar-driven power-pop" are.
