"Lecester Bangs"

"State Of Denial", the band's second album recorded at Frogville Studios is both rootsy and country-ish, but with a distinct progressive, indie pop streak. I suppose, if a comparison is to be made, Wilco seems obvious,but there's something easier about Drastic Andrew, that's very likeable.

Led by singer-songwriter Andrew MacLauchlan, the Santa Fe based quintet nail their colors to the mast with a collection of songs that delve into various themes, from social injustice and the environment, to love and relationships. It's a range of subjects that songwriters are prone to explore, so it's to MacLauchlan's credit that he brings something new and original to the table. "State Of Denial" begins with "Why Is the Sky", which sounds like it might have its lyrical roots in the `60s Greenwich Village scene, but a full production and ambitious arrangement transcends its folk intimations. The horns on "Wolfgang Fischer" work brilliantly with Ben Wright's lead guitar and Kevin Zoernig jazzy keyboard runs, and the country styling of "Just a Man" brings instant contrast. —Leicester Bangs - reviewed online


Still working on that hot first release.
