I wish I had somehow written about the Tall Tales ep Short Songs By Tall Tales And The Silver Lining (Beehouse Records) back in March when it was released. Although I don’t see myself as having much pull, perhaps a few sympathetic bloggers could have piled on and gotten behind this understated ep and it could have seen a wider release/more praise. As it is now, in Internet time, this release is has-been.
“The Glow” is northern California freak-folk (lite on the freak) complete with lyrical references to nature, the sea and the wind. Musically it’s all over the place with plenty of finger-picked acoustic guitar, a bongo solo and even some feedback laced electric guitar (for the Neil Young fan inside each and every one of us). You can buy this 9 song ep here from Beehouse.
