Lush Music, Tight Harmonies, Great Band, Funny Name

Frankly, I had never heard of these guys, but I was searching for recordings of the great old tune “California Stars” after hearing it sung live on Public Radio. I was immediately impressed by the lushness and quality of the sound on their version of this tune. I listened to several recordings of it, including the well-known Billy Bragg cover. The Shinkle Band stood out above the rest. All the songs are eminently listenable and the album flows well. “Honey” is a decided change of pace from the other offerings, being slower in pace and very much in the mood of a reverie. “Long Since Over You” features some primo country fiddle work in a song about being not drawn back into a toxic relationship. There’s a lot of 2/4 rhythm in the songs, as is customary in country rock, supported by first-class percussion that is always present but not plodding. A prime example of this is “Meet Me in New Orleans”. “Roadside Blues” makes being on the side of the highway a joyous experience with its humorous lyrics and terrific slide guitar and fiddling. There ain’t a dud in any of the downloads. You can listen to this musical fizz many times over and it doesn’t get stale. I recommend you try it and buy it.
