Acoustic / Bluegrass / Country / Folk
In certain musical genres, like bluegrass and old-time country, fans denigrate certain groups for sounding too professional. The devotees consider slickness a sign of inauthenticity. That can be a problem for those pickers who master their instruments with felicity and finesse. They just play too darn well.
There is a kernel of truth in the criticism, as sometimes music that is performed too well can reek of sterility. That's a danger faced by flat-picking acoustic guitarist Matt Arcara, banjo player Wesley Corbett, and mandolinist Jacob Joliff, the instrumental heart of Joy Kills Sorrow. They always play clear and crisp. That's largely a good thing, but gets to be boring song after song. You wish they'd hit a wrong note or break a string.
Almost half of the songs were written by bassist/harmony vocalist Bridget Kearney, and they are the best ones on the album. They are literate, if a bit earnest, and at their best reveal a reflective mind.
COMMENTS/ORIGINAL ARTICLE BY Steve Horowitz
They are a great band in my view of audible knowledge, if that's credible? I do know that Bridget Kearney is the heart and back-bone of this band. She should be watched I hope to see her and her bands play on Jools Holland's BBC show soon. I have an inkling of dear depths and profound talent from the very soul where real music should come from and communicate to the others who really listen.
