Wisdom from the Green Shag Carpet [Single]

The Redding Brothers , so, consequently, they're the star attraction. Their 12-track, full length debut, &#34 Redding Brothers Scott Depot is known for a lot of things. Most of them I'm not aware of. The Redding Brothers are a three-piece rock outfit that hails from there , Wisdom From The Green Shag Carpet&#34 , is the result of years of playing and touring with each other. They released the CD on their own Nashville-based label, Brick & Stone Records. They list Nirvana and R.E.M. as influences on their website, and the first song &#34 , Throwing Stones&#34 , sounds like it's right out of a Kurt Cobain set list. Singer Micah Redding sings: I'm living my life like it's not for me/I'm living my life like it's not for free. Yet the up-tempo, grunge-era song is atypical of the broad range of tunes on &#34 , Wisdom&#34 , 34 . The second song , 34 Rosebud , and the rocking begins shortly thereafter. The band starts to use synths (strings, piano, etc.) for a deep sound. Micah's lyrics are deeply introspective. On &#34 gets a star by me (I've developed a set of checks and stars!) Driving acoustic strumming is joined by electric power riff , Rosebud&#34 , and that's a shame. The band has got this tension thing down. Songs like &#34 he says: I don't want to be another cold life/blowing out the candles just to shine in the night. Huh. The lyrics are not included in the sleeve , Soul Slip Away&#34 , and &#34 , Misled&#34 , strumming, quiet intro verse, stomped pedal for the next couple of verses, snare roll (pre-chorus), rocking chorus, back to quiet verse, then even more rocking chorus for the outro. If it is a formula, it's a good one. Other hits on the CD include &#34 are good examples of this. Slow , 34 Child Of Yesterday , &#34 , 34 Walking , 34 Live , Micah is strong. His voice sometimes seem to stray into the bathroom and into the tub (too much reverb-echo) With brothers Josiah (bass, keyboards) and Gabriel (drums) joining him, they're even stronger. This CD surprised me. Described as an &#34 which features a church organ. Vocally , 34 acoustic-driven act , I expected something like James Taylor (not that there's anything wrong with that :&#62 , you'll be pleasantly surprised. Since they're just three people, you expect them to have a thin sound. No dice. Layered, distorted acoustic (sometimes too distorted) and electric guitar fatten the sound. How that carries over into a live show would be interesting to hear. The keyboards, strings, and assorted noise make for a more experimental sound. On the last song, &#34 ) If you expect an acoustic band , Polar Bear Song&#34 , there's even a cool portamento-type synth effect for a second, like a siren that attempts to fire up, but gives up before it's first peak is reached. I know what you're saying: &#34 , I love free stuff. How can I get this CD off you for nothing?&#34 Nick , or email one to gazz@wvgazette.com. If it's half way intelligent, you may be a winnah. The brothers take their act on the road this Saturday, when they hit the Halloween show at HYAMP. If you can't tell, that's the HYAMP flier for the show at bottom. And, oh yes, I do hate the player, and the game. Easy. Leave a comment below to this post Audio CD

THE CD: "Wisdom From The Green Shag Carpet" (Brick & Stone) --The WV Gazz

This the the absolute best Redding Brothers CD yet! They've really outdone themselves this time. I got mine as soon as they were released and I play it in my car all the time. My favorite songs are "Rosebud" and "Throwing Stones". I agree with the other review that the Redding Brothers definitely have their own "thing" going on. Keep it up guys! by Sandra Iglesby --CDBaby.com

Excellent CD of well-written rock music. The percussion and the guitars support the band's lyrics and voices without overpowering them. "Mister Rogers (Neighborhood)" provides an interesting perspective different from the one I recall having as a child of the show in question. It's a great and interesting song. Another favorite is "Child of Yesterday" because it is very poignant. I highly recommend the purchase of this CD. I could make positive notes on each of the tracks, but choose to leave my comments no-more-elaborate. The comparisons to the Barenaked Ladies and Dave Matthews are not unfounded, but the Redding Brothers have their own 'thing' going for them. Sarah Dulaney --CDBaby.com
