Baba Yaga has the band combining so many things that have been done before and done well at that. The reverb, the ragged harmonies and liberal use of pedal steel. That being said, is done in such a fresh and genuine way that it feels like you in uncharted waters. Whether it be the closing guitar work at Virginia Slims or the chorus working with an almost tribal beat on Felix Helix, Futurebirds are looking to put their own stamp on Americana. That leads to great unique tracks like the churning rocker Serial Bowls, the spacey twang of Tan Lines and the epic closer St. Summpercamp.
While the lads have have put forth a great effort here, do everything you can to see them in their natural setting – on a stage with hair flying and amps blaring. There are few better young acts out there touring today.
