CUB COUNTRY [I]HIGH UINTA HIGH[/I] REVIEW
The Prettiest-Sounding Album of the Month award goes to Cub Country. Formed by Jets to Brazil bassist, Jeremy Chatelain, Cub Country gives us 11 soulful folk songs not unlike releases by Golden Smog or fellow folk revivalists Will Oldham and Ryan Adams. High
Uinta High mixes basic country standards (slide guitar, pedal steel, brushed drumming), simplistic blues structures, and catchy pop overtones to produce a beautiful album. It's catchy, charming, personal, and one of the best listens of the year so far. Plus Chatelain's publicity photo shows him standing on the Brooklyn Bridge, partial to the Brooklyn side. Hot.
