Routes & Branches 1/26/13

I had the pleasure of having the Portland band Fruition in to the studio this week. They stopped by on their way to a show at the WOW Hall. Fruition has a base in the string band tradition with the addition of drums and percussion to propel their music to a new level of intensity. Even the slower tracks have hot leads from Mandolin player Mimi Naja and guitarist Jay Cobb Anderson. With a strong rhythm section made up of Kellen Asebrock on guitar, Keith Simon on bass, and Tyler Thompson on drums, Fruition will keep you dancing all night long.
Several good new releases caught my ear this week including Davis Coen's "Hard Luck,  Chicago Farmer with his CD "Backenforth, IL" and the  Kelly Willis & Bruce Robinson CD "Cheater's Game".
