Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

BORIS GARCIA

Once More Into the Bliss

2008-10-13

Not a person, Boris Garcia is a band of five guys who've been on the Philadelphia music scene for some twenty years. They categorize themselves as "jamgrass", a fusion of folk, rock, blues, Celtic, and, of course, bluegrass. This, their third album, was produced by Jim Carbone of Railroad Earth and is chock full of good stuff. The first two songs are almost Beatles-esque in their instrumentation and production. Both "Through the Window" and "Go" (songs #3 and #4) are upbeat and catchy. You just might find yourself humming along the very first time you hear them; and any song about a cat ("Scootch") is okay with me. This is all in all a fine album. Reviewed by Rebecca Ruth.
