Jason Heath and the Greedy Souls - A Season Undone
On their Twitter page, Jason Heath and the Greedy Souls describe themselves as "Post-Amerikana Acoustelectric Agit-POP Arena Folkountry Rock from the streets of Los Angeles." That's a lot of baggage to unpack. But here's what you need to know about their latest album, A Season Undone. If you want some wide-open spaces, heartland rock and roll. Full of road anthems and everyman angst, this is a damn fine album for you to throw into the car CD player. Play it loud and next thing you know you'll forget where you are headed and you'll find yourself heading off on that odyssey you always dreamed of. Jason Heath leads on vocals, Jason Federici plays accordion, Chris Joyner is on keyboards, Justin Salmons rocks the guitars, Abraham Etz and Casey Johnson share drum duties, Jose Esquivel and Will Mack are on bass. Tobin Dale is on lap steel. Ysanne Spevack plays violin. Background vocals are by Farayi Dominique and Laura Key. The album features guest appearances from Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine), Wayne Kramer (MC5), and Nels Cline (Wilco).
I'm adding "A Season Undone," "Turn On (The Radio)," "All The Fighters," and "Armageddon Town" to rotation.
