I discovered Bearfoot after seeing them open up for The Saw Doctors this March & I am in completely in love with this band. They're all in their mid-20s, gorgeous, elusive, crazy-good pickers, & from Alaska. Nice to see Alaska produce something positive in 09. ;)

My favorite songs are "Oh My Love"(you can feel the water and taste the salt when Odessa (lead singer) sings the line "I will take you to the sea and wash away apart of me"), and their cover of The Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down". I know, I know - Beatles covers make me roll my eyes too, but give this one a shot. Promise - the way they lean into the vocals....you'll melt. Bearfoot's playing at Webster Hall in NYC on April 30 - come hang!

...I've been following Bearfoot for a while now, since first seeing them at an International Bluegrass Music Association showcase several years back, and I must say, it's great to see them continue to consolidate their strengths and make great artistic strides -- as they do on this new album. What first struck me was the fantastic vocal blend of the the band's three female singers...it is haunting and timeless in an old-fashioned bluegrass way, but also implied hints of swing and more ethereal pop. It was striking at the time, and it sings through loud and clear on "Doors and Windows."

"Doors and Windows" could be the big breakthrough for these guys, who have been working hard, traveling from one coast to the other, for years. The musicianship is finely honed, brilliantly balancing bluegrass soul and a more flexible, contemporary edge. The solo vocals are delicately heartbreaking (check out the cover of "Don't Let Me Down," which quietly obliterates every bluegrass-meets-the-Beatles cliche), and the band's original songwriting continues to mature, hitting new peaks of craft and clarity here.

If you're looking for the next big young roots act -- something along the lines of Nickel Creek, Alison Krauss and Union Station, Crooked Still, King Wilkie, etc. -- you should give Bearfoot a good hard listen. It's subtle, organic stuff, beautiful and uplifting while gently heartbreaking. Highly recommended!

This is probably the greatest bluegrass band I have heard since Alison Krauss and Union Station. I've listened to "Doors and Windows" more times than I can count and I think I will probably wear the album out before it wears me out. :) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
