Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Bow Thayer

Spend It All

2007-02-02

Described as a “reminiscence of Bob Dylan, John Prine, The Grateful Dead, Arlo Guthrie and classic country of the forties and fifties” and compared to Wilco, Ryan Adams, and Yonder Mountain Spring Band, Thayer’s brand of newgrass has a touch of all of those mentioned blended into something he can proudly call his own. His writing is imaginative and strong, the music toe-tapping good. Dig the baritone sax in the mix on 4-The Way That It Swings, and the fiddle on 5-Snake Bite, arguably the two best cuts on a very listenable album. -- Mostly
