Firewater: The Golden Hour
Buy! - (Bloodshot)
Recently split from his wife and disgusted with the re-election of George W. Bush, Firewater frontman Tod A. took a 3-year sabbatical through the Middle East, the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia, recording a variety of performances from musicians in India and Pakistan (and later Turkey and Israel) that would be used as the main accompaniment to songs he had written along the way. Firewater has always incorporated different musical styles from around the world, and this time Bhangra and sufi elements are prominent, along with klezmer, surf and other styles in bracingly honest songs using dark humor, sarcasm and outrage to depict a world gone wrong. 4/15/2008 - Don Yates
