Dave, the funny guitarist from POLVO, gets together with Chuck Johnson of SPATULA and Grant Tenille ("dude, he's actually the good one in the band") to transcend the boundaries created by their other ensembles. What's that mean?Well, it means you get to draw deep from the hookah, and merge into the topography of a land where Eastern modal structures dominate, and beautiful melodies are created by a wide range of acoustic instruments like oud, sarod, saz, dulcimer (that's biblical for "stringed instrument"), & banjo along with some fine guitar picking. Were Gastr' Del Sol to involve itself with Middle Eastern sounds, it would be almost as good as this. Fans of this trio's other bands will hear the linkage, but get happy....something new & wonderful is in the air. The Tazo Tea Shaman has already mailordered a box lot.
