Deep Fryed Acoustiblasters, Self Titled

by Constance Tucker

Midwest based Deep Fryed Acoustiblasters is truly a band of seasoned professionals and musical genius. An exciting mixture of Bluegrass, and all its many acoustic brethren, this simply delightful offering features Grammy winning special guest Michael Cleveland on Fiddle.

There are thirteen well-crafted cuts for the listener to enjoy, twelve of them penned by the band members and an enchanting version of the traditional instrumental, “Beaumont Rag.”

Today we are going to examine this very cut. Right from the start, the group grabs the listener and takes them on a journey, beginning with a cut properly titled “Barnburner.” Out of the gate, from the instrumentation to the vocals, it has a pace which seems to leave the listener breathless in its musical running. The dexterity of each player is evident from the onset. The chemistry and interaction between each player spills over creating deep colors and textures upon the musical palette.

While it is clear that the Deep Fryed Acoustiblasters primary focus is original works and improvisational ventures, the traditional flavorings of the finest Bluegrass masterpieces find their way into this versatile CD. So get your griddle ready and prepare to get Deep Fryed.
