The Cedars

"The Cedars are a bluesy Americana throwback, belting out hard-edged ballads cut right through with gleeful cynicism and solipsistic insensitivity. Songs of jilted love and distant lovers are spiked with south-of-the-border travelling imagery and conjure up scenes of dusty crossroads and cracked river beds so vivid that your throat gets dry just listening to it. Even in a dark and smoke-filled basement, it's impossible not to get carried on these big tunes of the Big Sky Country that are somehow both melancholy and uplifting."
