A FINE ROMANCE
Dean & Britta are Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips, known to each other as husband and wifeand to the rest of the world as half of Luna, the dreamy alt-rock outfit that called it quits in 2005. As D&B, Wareham and Phillips do a knowing yet tender version of Lee Hazelwood and Nancy Sinatras circa-60s duo act, and Back Numbers, their 2007 disc, contains some of the sexiest tunes you might ever hear about reading the paper and watching TV. Opener Keren Ann released a self-titled album last year that replaced some of her natural French-café charm with the less immediate pleasures of postCat Power indie-soul. Its still plenty breathy.
