Few bands in the post-millennial re-explosion of interest in old-timey and bluegrass sound as natural as Uncle Earl. While most attempts to capture a true bluegrass feel fail in the modern studio--the results sound less like roots music and more like an NPR news precursor--for their third record, Uncle Earl captures a genuine warmth and energy required to make the music smoke. Taking on a mostly traditional set, with a fantastic cover of Dylan's gentle "Wallflower" and some originals as well, the quartet's WATERLOO, TENNESSEE overcomes both anachronism and modern banality, and proves that they are the band to beat in the contemporary bluegrass scene.
