“This is a really great CD...the term acoustic rock band underestimates their sophistication...excellent musicians who express themselves effectively in well-crafted songs, played note-perfect but without sounding mechanistic...", says TNT Audio. Blues Traveler or Barenaked Ladies are a reference point, but neither capture Yucca’s quirky eloquence.
The magic of these intense songs is in their
contradictions: abrasively melodic, visionary but destructive, callused yet vulnerable. Raw,
live-to-two-track unpasteurized analog, the band’s sound rips without an ounce of delicacy. Their shredding guitars, throbbing bass, and the piledriver drums literally rattled the floorboards Mapleshade's studio.
"Not your average blues/folk singer...very passionate and spiritual." raves Musician's Exchange.
If you're into early Dylan or Arlo Guthrie, you'll love Silent Bear. Mark rocks on harmonica, picks a mean guitar, and writes hard-hitting songs.
Frank Doris praises, "...Evocative of bands like the legendary band Love, with its emphasis on plaintive vocals, soaring vocal harmonies and lilting pop songcraft...Exceptional sonic purity, 'air' and resolution of the finest musical nuances, from the 'ping' of the cymbals to the transient clarity and 'pluck' of the acoustic guitars..."
Stereophile raves, “The minute you hear Young’s...voice, you know that this is not just another faultlessly dead audiophile recording...The songs are copacetic, and the band really cooks.” Two Blood, Sweat & Tears bandmates, Lou Marini and Larry Willis, wonderfully enhance Harvey’s authentic, colorful narratives with in-the-pocket arrangements of his country ballads and barnstormers.
“Two voices and two pairs of hands can produce some mighty fine music...their complementary harmony vocals and their driving and mutually supportive instrumental work on mandolin, banjo, and guitar...will rekindle your appreciation of the “small band” sound in bluegrass,” says Bluegrass Unlimited. We're proud our two-mike purism really captured the amazing live excitement of Danny and Will's old-time singin’ and pickin’.
The moment these brothers leaned into the mike, it was obvious why they’ve been winning national awards for 40 years. Their all-star banjo-fiddle-guitar-bass band includes multiple Grammy winners, two world bluegrass champions, and a Bluegrass Hall of Honor member.
