MP3 REVIEW: California Baseball Band “Deep Creek” (Swan City Sounds)

                California Baseball Band has some great folk sounds, combining harmonica and banjo into the fold.   They don’t remind me of Mumford as much, but they do have some hints of Two Gallants, Marcy Playground and Langhorne Slim.   I can also hear some Animal Flag coming out.

                These five songs also have a bedroom quality to them, which I’m not sure if that is a sign of the recording or the intent as far as the music itself goes.

                Not too long ago (within the last few years) it seemed like every band wanted to be Mumford & Sons.   It’s good to see someone still making good old fashioned folk music with a modern twist and not trying to copy that other band.
