Song Of The Day 3/26/2013: Happy Jawbone Family Band - "Book Of Fire"

One new album that's growing on and possibly inside me is Tastes The Broom from The Happy Jawbone Family Band. They are based in Vermont. They sound exactly what I feel a band from Vermont would sound like (Phish notwithstanding). A little cut off from civilization, exhibiting some cult-like tendencies, playing on equipment whose warranties have just expired, singing, speaking and possibly thinking through an exhaust cloud, the origin of which remains a secret nobody's willing to talk about. This album would have both proven and rebuffed Steve Allen's broadsides against rock music. I first heard this album while driving, which probably wasn't a great idea, but nobody got sideswiped, and for people of my generation that's a plus. Enjoy.
