Two years after the Walkabouts" successful return with the chart album "Acetylene", a new Chris & Carla album, "Fly High Brave Dreamers", finally was released in 2007. It had been way too long (1998!) since the two had last appeared as a duo. Musically, a lot had changed since then. Of course, the trademarks remained audible: the warm, excellently unobtrusively produced basic mood, Eckman"s guitar playing, the vocal harmonies.

But the result is an upbeat version of a Chris & Carla record. One half was produced with analogue instruments as a digital production, a sort of folktronica draft, the other five songs as live and direct as possible with the support of Al Deloner (ex-Midnight Choir) and Jason Victor (Steve Wynn, Willard Grant Conspiracy), among others. The eleventh song, "Salad Days" by the Young Marble Giants, provides the credo for this album: Stay direct and keep everything as simple as possible.
