It has been 8 years since the last album from the progenitors of polyethnic cajun slamgrass-- a unique hybrid of basically every type of American music. In the meantime, Vince Herman has occupied himself with Great American Taxi-- a Little Feat-meets-Flying Burrito Brothers mix of country, rock and Southern R&B. Drew Emmitt has been doing solo stuff closer to New Grass Revival, and teaming up with String Cheese Incident guitarist Bill Nershi for a slightly more traditional bluegrass project. So, has the sound of the band been affected by the band members' other projects? Nope. The only thing that really distinguishes the sound of Aquatic Hitchhiker from the good old days is the hole left by the passing of banjo player Mark Vann. Noam Pikelny, who had taken the banjo spot for a while, is busy these days hanging around with Chris Thile and becoming a solo star on the bluegrass scene, so stepping in for him is Andy Thorn, who plays banjo with the Emmitt-Nershi Band. He is a fine player, and he fits in well with the rest of the band. No doubt the experience playing with Drew has given him some level of comfort with Leftover Salmon's genre-hopping ways. Vann's unique touch with the electrified banjo just can't be duplicated, though. Big shoes to fill, and all that. Thorn is worthy to play with these guys, though.

If you are already a Leftover Salmon fan, then you know what to expect. The "aquatic hitchhiker" meanders through southern music with stops in Cajun country, the Blueridge Mountains, Atlanta, Mississippi, and of course, a trip outside the South to Telluride. They play with energy, skill and fun, as they always have. If there is a real flaw to the album, it is that they have done this before.

Leftover Salmon the self-described masters of Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass jump back into the mix in 2012 with the fantastic release Aquatic Hitchhiker. Aquatic Hitchhiker sees the band slowing down a little into a solid Rock N Roll and country tinged Jam band. Leftover Salmon are definitely at their peak and are having fun, and it shines through in the music. Sadly after losing Mark Vann to cancer in 2002, Drew Emmitt and Vince Herman continue on and wave the psychedelic jam band flag in spectacular fashion. Even so Mark Vann was a vital part of the band, and a prominent songwriter, with the loss of Mark Vann we also see a loss of much of the Cajun influence. This is not necessarily bad, as Drew Emmitt is an amazing musician and the Drew Emitt-Vince Herman partnership is still running with full steam and writing great songs. Its just without Mark Vann Leftover Salmon is a little bit different, just a little slower, with minimal cajun elements and a more forward rock, and country influence jam band sound... No matter for old listeners and new jump in for the ride! Aquatic Hitchhiker is a truly fun album, from a band having fun and at the peak of their playing and songwriting abilities. Jam on.

Great effort from these fine gentlemen who know how to entertain. It had been some time since their last release, and they sound great. The entire disc is super, but I especially enjoyed "Gulf of Mexico","Aquatic Hitchhiker","Light Behind The Rain","Walking Shoes" and the one everyone is talking about, "Here Comes The Night". Great job again, Leftover Salmon. Thank You for a superb release.

Several of these songs are as good as or better than anything in the band's past. Keep Driving will make you wanna hit the road. Aquatic Hitchhiker is a killer jam. Sing Up to the Moon starts my evening on a high energy beat. Kentucky Skies is hot, every bluegrass band should learn this cookin', dancin' six step beat. Here Comes the Night is a total deviation for this band, jazzy and beautiful. This song should be #1 somewhere if radio would ever play this still improving band.

Great album at a great price. Check them out on tour if you can to get a better feel for these songs and get a real sense of how much fun they have on stage. Great musicians who love to play music. Highly recommended!
