CUB COUNTRY [I]HIGH UINTA HIGH[/I] REVIEW
This is Jeremy Chatelain, bassist for Jets to Brazil, flying solo. It's actually not as bad as I thought it was going to be. It does have a splash of country to it but it didn't annoy me. It's actually a pretty relaxing CD. It's different. Doesn't really remind me of anything else I've heard lately. It has been described as "acoustic sparkle, soulful slides with dashes of twang." I couldn't have said it better myself. The revolving cast of guests (Cashe Tolman-Rival Schools, Nick Macri-Euphone, Theo Kogan-Lunachicks, Chris Traynor-Helmet, Orange 9mm) all add their own special little flair. I must warn you though, there is actual use of a washboard as an instrument in the song "Faithful Soldier." I would recommend this CD to anyone looking to add a little something different to their collection.
