Trains I missed

So glad I didn't miss this one. Great album. Cover song should win song of the year undisputed.

Truly special!!

This morning while driving to work between Golden and Boulder, CO, I heard Balsam Range on XM's Bluegrass Junction. This was the first I had hear of them. It was one of those rare, "GOTTA HAVE THE ALBUM!!!" moments. I downloaded it at work, and I'm so glad I did. This is such an amazing group. There is so much HEART in their music. I've had that experience a few times, such as with Pat Metheny's First Circle, and a set of recordings of Dvorak Symphonies by Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony. Balsam Range is in that category for me, and I think any lover of amazing music will just love this album.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm a-gonna download "Last Train to Kitty Hawk", and I can't wait for Paper Town to come out in a couple of weeks!!

Amazing musicality

I want to publish this review over for each BR album- they are an incredible set of musicians. Pull apart their music and you'll find incredible things. For example, the song "Hard Price to Pay" - note how it has a slightly errie sound at the start? It's not a bright A major, but it's not a dark A minor. Why? Because it's not in any key (yet) - they are playing only the 1st and 5th tone in the chord, which is the same for both major and minor- it isn't until they drop in the F#minor chord that we get assurnace that they are playing A major (funny how they use a minor chord to do that). THEN they switch us to D major for the chorus so that they can feature the G major chord, the flat 7 of A major. It's crazy music theory, but it works seamlessly - and it's not just random. They do things like this often in their music- they are well trained in music theory and are pushing the bounds of "normal" bluegrass. Very, very interesting music.
