Reseña de álbum

By the time Spine appeared, original members Irvine and Eriksen were accompanied by fiddler Laura Risk and vocalist/dulcimer player/accordionist Cath Oss. With Steve Albini handling production, the quartet created a smashing baker's dozen interpretations of folk/roots tunes, given fine arrangements throughout. The group may be playing music as old as the hills, but such is the quality of the band that one could imagine it just being made and recorded the other day. Albini doesn't try and make the recording sound either too brash or too self-consciously "antique" — the four just sound like themselves, drawing on their abilities with fine results. One of Eriksen's best numbers is the interpretation of "Montcalm and Wolfe," telling the story of the climactic battle of the French and Indian War with just his vocal and guitar, and doing so with haunting calm.

Although Cordelia's Dad started as a standard punk-influenced guitar-bass-drums rock band, their repertoire from the beginning has consisted entirely of traditional American folk tunes. Although the electric instrumentation became less pronounced in their music after their first few albums, Cordelia's Dad have remained known for both their intensity and playfulness. This element is particularly evident on-stage, where lead singer Tim Eriksen will spin humorous stream-of-consciousness stories between...
