Album Review

That Say Zuzu isn't better known in the alt-country milieu is a wonder, for the group combines the best elements of their forbears yet has enough of their own sonic stamp to make them standouts on their own. Like Uncle Tupelo, the group is defined by two strong singer/songwriters, Cliff Murphy and Jon Nolan. And like that former group, Say Zuzu has evolved from their initial roughed-up electric guitar sound to a more nuanced, varied approach. Say Zuzu can also be reasonably compared to Whiskeytown in sound — that is, if Whiskeytown had kept things together and built on the rootsy strength of Stranger's Almanac rather than tapering off into airy pop and then nothingness. In fact, listening to Every Mile, the only explanation available for Zuzu's lack of a major breakthrough is that they're from New Hampshire — and that they're called "Say Zuzu." This band has evolved wonderfully throughout the '90s, and while 1998's Bull was an excellent effort, Every Mile is even better. Overall, the album displays a rawer guitar sound than Bull. The opener, "Lonely," throws down the gauntlet with a fuzzed-out, skronk-edged guitar tone that lands smack dab between Dinosaur Jr. and Crazy Horse. "Wish Me Well" continues the momentum, with the raw tones molded into upbeat, melodic roots rock. Say Zuzu still composes great acoustic country tunes as well, best represented here by a trio of hard-scrabble beauties — "Don't Leave," "Sugarbowl," and "Still" — the latter of which includes such heartworn lyricism as: "Still you walk and breathe the ghosts of those that you had loved the most/And wonder in your heart if they are doing alright."

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

The Portsmouth, NH, band Say Zuzu play a brand of lively, melodic roots rock that often gets lumped into the alt-country camp. In the mid-'90s, after having little commercial success in the U.S., the group suddenly found themselves with a healthy following in Italy. Apparently, Say Zuzu's 1995 album, Highway Signs & Driving Songs, had ended up in the hands of an editor of an Italian rock magazine (Milan's Buscadero). The editor became a huge fan of the group and gave them major press for Highway...
