CD: Select Captain - Pure Neon EP

Select Captain
Pure Neon EP

Morning 3:04 Here We Stand 3:18 Adamantine 3:11 Slow 3:35 Pure Neon 6:39

It’s been a long tiresome month. At first it was the Tuesday festivals with people juggling fire, hula-hooping with these glow-in-the dark ones, bands and DJ’s, hippies, Rastafarians, hipsters, new age people, and vendors selling their wares(I was along with the vendors). Then, it was the family coming back from overseas. Next, was(and still is) the ongoing medical crap from my surgery three years ago, my daughter starting school, my wife with her college, and now the help with both of their homework and problems. But, I’m pretty sure this EP will set me back in the right direction with my own writing. So, I’m starting the music and away I go.
Morning, doesn’t disappoint. A galloping acoustic guitar seems to be travelling down ghost tracks through patchwork fog. The Captain climbs aboard waving his headlamp, piercing the moonless night while the smokestack belches, the rails squeals, the crossties of the bridge harmonize, and the swamp boils, bubbling on toward the sun break.
Select Captain is the creation, or evolution of the 1950’ies beat poets following the traditions of what is now commonly referred to as Americana. It’s that niche that few dare attempt to step into because so many of the classic greats are categorized as such: Bob Dylan, The Grateful Dead, Carlos Santana, Paul Simon, etc., all fit and truly developed this niche. Kristian Gaarskjær is the Select Captain. He is the singer, songwriter, and guitarist who is now taking on the further development of this new art form, and from what I am hearing now, he seems to be branching off to create a category of his own. The band is made up of Søren Vestergaard, Kasper Olsen, Johannes Gissel, Jonas Wegner. They are based out of Copenhagen, Denmark.
Here We Stand( and Nothing Ever Changes), the second track on this EP is driven by its lyrics and acoustic as well. This one is a bit slower and somewhat has a much more ominous sound with a vengeful message. Lyrically its darkness can be summed up by the refrain,
“ Once again we’re in trouble where we stand. You have messed it up again…”
Adamantine, picks up the pace as it takes the listener into the “wild west”. It sounds like the Captain has plugged in. This song has that western feel to it, the deep “Marlboro Man” cowboy kind. Halfway through the song it breaks into a slower rhythm in order to pierce through and take away the innocence if he has to. So far, this is a different type of song, a “Man in Black,” style song. I had to look up the definition of the title itself and it says, “1. utterly unyielding or firm in attitude or opinion. 2. too hard to cut, break, or pierce. 3. like a diamond in luster.” Just listening to this song over and over I love that break and how it picks back up.
Slow, is just as it is titled. I’ve listened to it numerous times and know it’s almost written as if a letter to someone. I haven’t quite figured out if it is a song to break up for good with someone that has been an on-again-off-again relationship, or if it is just one to say, “Let’s move beyond this constant game playing.” In either case, the song is an absolute beautiful addition to this EP, and a powerful one at that.
The title track, Pure Neon, really throws the Select Captain into an entirely differently realm. Sure you have the guitar and the drums but there is electronic mix. I could just picture seeing this in a club environment with laser projections, the fitting light spectacle and the right sound system/echo chamber style environment to take it all in and absorb it.
I really have to say this was really something I was not expecting. It was incredibly written, both lyrically and vocally it was dead on, and it was brilliantly produced.

"The world still needs to hear country music."  According to Adam Pope, writer, composer, singer, recording artist, 'country music' has always been an 'old friend' to many of us.  Not to many, to hundreds of thousands of millions. It's that 'old friend' Adam is pursuing, in the least likely of places, Nashville, Tennessee.  What an interesting approach to recording original songs.  He's a terrific writer, in the typical, well understood, topical tropical approach.  It's coming right off the top of his head, panama hat or not.  He makes his home in Cottontown, Tennessee, where he abides his time with wife and son, continuing his endless efforts trying to get some 'real' country music in front of the very 'phony' song users of Nashville, in a brave attempt to get them to wake up to the real world of real country music.  Wherever you see 'story' in the listing of songs, you hear Adam 'talking' about his experiences, why he wrote some songs, why he didn't others.  For Adam Pope, "it all begins with a story and ends with a song," couldn't be more truthful.  There's a ton of musicians on this project, many if not most playing different instruments at different times.  The bottom line on sound is this is truly a nice representation of classic and traditional country music utilizing the incredible adeptness of a good producer (Adam), to put together a remarkable final product.  For me this is a far different approach to what is happening in Nashville these days, this is truly an 'individualist' approach to a finished product, but not just a 'product' to listen to, mumble about, argue about, toss about, or throw away.  This CD has truly earned it's 'right' to be listened to by important people in the music business.  Whether that happens or not might depend a great deal on another element that Adam Pope keeps at the forefront.  He's a Christian, and not afraid to say that, or even write and dedicate some of his music to that end.  He has a little 'touch' of Merle in his voice, but he's solidly his own man when it comes to writing and recording good well-written songs. He adds a considerable amount of 'personal experiences' in his songwriting, and they are great.  He drifts a little away from that 'old friend' he started out with on the first song, but not so much that any traditional or classic country fan would dislike.  His 'stories in the songs' is paramount, and that is what 'real' country music has always been about.  His 'love' that he so valiantly places in each and every element of this recording is also very present.  It's the new season for me to forward CD's I review to the Rural Roots Music Commission for their review for CD of the Year awards.  Good luck Adam Pope, I think you're great.

Ambassador Records is a company in Canada that still deals with the 'real' music of country folks, and here is one to hear, with pleasure.  With our 'country' music history rapidly disappearing and deteriorating in America, it is certainly a pleasure to hear the downhome music that has in the past made 'country' music such a real and delightful listening experience.  This is basically an 'instrumental' CD release, but what a delight.  Robin Evans plays the fiddle, and his partner Gary Gale, plays the old style small accordion.  They had to research a lot of music to find so many Newfoundland songs for their session.  I'm sure Robin Evans is a direct relative to Paul & Linda Evans who own Ambassador Records and the recording studio where they produce their fabulous music.  It was this same label that garnered the NTCMA's "Best Traditional Yodel CD of the Year" in 2010, recorded by Naomi Bristow.  This same studio and label is doing a remarkable job keeping traditional country music alive and well.  With Robin Evans and Gary Gale providing this terrific instrumental music at gatherings like the "Musicians Corn Roast" and the "Hitchin' Post Jamboree" you can imagine how busy this studio and record label is staying.  This particular CD is a thoroughly delightful listening experience.  Very up-tempo, and I believe many, if not most, of the songs these gents perform is dance music from Newfoundland.  They have added a simple bass line and background drums to make it easier to dance to, but still kept the music inside the melody lines they are playing.  I'm glad this is one of the first CD's I am reviewing for the new season of "CD of the Year" selections the Rural Roots Music Commission will be awarding next year at the LeMars, Iowa festival, the 41st one.  This will be the first one they will have the opportunity to listen to, and I know they will delight in the wonderful abilities of these two artists.  Whether they can keep it at the top of their various lists of CD awards is a wait and see situation.  For me, this is one of the best 'old-time' delightful instrumental musical CD's on the market.  More power to Evans and Gale as they pursue the music they like, love, and perform.

THOMAS RHETT DIE


THOMAS RHETT DIE

Nashville, TN – Sept. 17, 2015 -"My wife has been on me for years to write something for her like Tim McGraw's 'Just to See You Smile,’” shares Thomas Rhett. “Obviously this isn't exactly like that, but it's my interpretation. It's one-hundred percent autobiographical of our relationship in a three-and-a-half minute ballad. It's probably my favorite song I've ever written and it will be fun to show our grandkids the video one day."

Co-written with Sean Douglas and Joe Spargur, Thomas Rhett has partnered with People to premiere the official music video for “Die A Happy Man” here. Directed by TK McKamy, the video was shot on a Hawaiian getaway with his wife Lauren over the summer and ends a string of weekly videos leading into TANGLED UP’s release. Beginning tomorrow, fans who preorder TANGLED UP on iTunes will instantly receive “Die A Happy Man" as well as the three previously released tracks.

Next week, Thomas Rhett will host a record-breaking concert event “Tangled Up in Texas,” which will include a full set of new music and his chart-topping hits at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX on Sept. 23. Initially garnering attention as a gifted songwriter with credits including hits by Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean and Lee Brice, it is the multi-Platinum artist's “high-energy all the way” (El Paso Times) live show that has “the audience dancing all the way up in the rafters of the stadium” (Billboard) and continues to catch the attention of critics out on the road. He is slated to headline the CMT Tour this fall, kicking off Oct. 29 in New York City.
