Editorial Reviews

Roll Me, Tumble Me, The Deadly Gentlemen's Rounder debut, features ten prime examples of their playfully irreverent, acoustic songcraft. Despite being so young, each member boasts an impressive musical history having toured with noted artists such as Bruce Springsteen, David Grisman, Tony Trischka, and Crooked Still. On Roll Me, Tumble Me this Boston-based quintet provides a sound filled with an unconventional vocal blend matched with an uncanny instrumental rapport, culminating in a vibrant collection of songs. The music of the Deadly Gentlemen is timeless, resonant, and rootsy while also contemporary - and boundlessly entertaining.

Greg Liszt (banjo player with Crooked Still before this project) has assembled a stellar bunch of cool virtuoso string players and put together a string of creative songs. You've got Dominick Leslie on mandolin, Samson Grisman on stand-up bass, Mike Barnett on fiddle, Stash Wyslouch on guitar, vocals, and headband, and Greg on all banjo strings at once. Mostly they do a kind of ensemble singing, reminiscent, dare I say, of Crosby, Stills and Nash (only not as cloying), accompanied by drop deadly string band plucking and bowing. Whatever your mood, you'll improve it by listening to these guys. Each member of this band is going places and it's nice to hear them collaborate on their merry way.

Format:Audio CD
This Boston-based quintet sports a traditional string band lineup of guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin and bass, and though that adds up to the acoustics of a bluegrass band, their original material is something distinct from that of the typical festival players. The differences likely stem from the varied background of the band members: fiddler Mike Barnett, bassist Sam Grisman (son of mandolinist David) and mandolinist Dominick Leslie had traditional childhood immersions in acoustic music, while banjoist Greg Liszt had a dual life as a picker (with the Crooked Still) and a scientist (including a Ph.D. in molecular biology from MIT), and guitarist Stash Wyslouch followed a route through rock and heavy metal before settling into country and bluegrass.

The band's moved closer to traditional song structures over their five years and three records, but the remnants of earlier experiments are still to be heard. Their harmonies, for example, range from traditional high-low bluegrass singing to unison passages they've characterized as "gang vocals." There's also a helping of country that suggests harmony acts like Alabama and the Statler Brothers. There's a hopefulness to their tone, even when singing lyrics of failed love, buoyed by rolling banjo, sawed fiddle and fluttering lines of mandolin. The tempos leave little time for dwelling on failure; "Bored of the Raging" emerges from a crawl to a run, and "A Faded Star" waves off inevitability in favor of the changeable present moment.

In contrast, the passing years of "Now is Not the Time" and stagnant living of "Working" seem to spark genuine worries (though the latter does manage a rare use of the word "wankfest" in a song lyric).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Deadly Gents firin' on all cylinders! October 28, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The prog, alternative, chamber bluegrass genre has exploded and produced a cornucopia of very talented young musicians, many from the Boston/New York scene. I'm diggin' this sound, but anxiously awaiting the return of Dr. Greg (& Aoife' O'Donovan) to the Crooked Still fold. BRING IT ON!
