iTunes Editors’ Notes

The Brooklyn trio Earl Greyhound add new drummer Ricc Sheridan to their volatile mix and explore a number of different styles on their second album, 2010’s Suspicious Package. “Oye Vaya” and “Ghost and the Witness” draw their influence from the Viking-tundra rumbling of early Led Zeppelin with Sheridan pounding with slightly less force than John Bonham but Matt Whyte and Kamara Thomas harmonizing with Robert Plant’s upper register clearly in sight. However, from there, the trio ventures towards ‘90s grunge with downcast chords and ambivalent guitar solos making their impression on “Shotgun” and “Holy Immortality.” There’s even a piano ballad, “Bill Evans,” that suggests they’ve been taking notes on Ben Folds Five-inspired AOR-styled pop. The various approaches make for an adventurous, confident group that have many different options to choose from in the future. Which path they choose should prove most interesting. For now, you may find yourself double-checking that it’s actually the same band throughout. It’s that wildly diverse.

Customer Reviews

Christopher Bear is not the drummer// Ricc Sheridan is! y'all should fix that.

From first to last a great album. And it has staying power, i've listened to it just about every day since the end of March.
'Eyes Of Cassandra' is like Mahavishnu Orchestra meets Jefferson Airplane.
'Oye Vaya' is just tight beats and riffs. Play it while you're cooking lunch or dinner.
' Ghost and the Witness' good.
'Shotgun' is as heavy as anything Crazy Horse has ever done minus their sloppiness and Kamara can sang. (Sorry Neil,i love Crazy Horse).
'Holy Immortality' is angelic metal.'Sea of Japan' is kinda funny, cool. 'Black Sea Vacation" is a soulful turn.
The last 3 songs 'Bill Evans', 'Out of Air', 'Misty Morning' are beautiful, they're like a suite. The lyrics to 'Out of Air' are cool as is the way the lead singers vocals climax on the final song 'Misty Morning Eyes'
Buy this CD, you will not be dissapointed!
peace

Rock is evolving

This band is great live, and the music is amazing. Drummer uses all ride cymbals, so there is this sustain going on, resembles Mitch Mitchell. Get both the CD's, best band I have heard in a while.

One of the best albums of 2010. Matt Whyte and Kamara Thomas great vocals compliment each other. Standout tracks: "Oye Vaya", "Ghost and the Witness", and the blistering "Shotgun". Check out "FUNK GUMBO" for more picks.
