Product description

Josh Joplin Group - Useful Music - CD

Amazon.com

The Josh Joplin Group coast the vertical horizon of adult alternative on their debut album. Backed by a full rhythm section, singer and storyteller Josh Joplin weaves words with a wistful whine that invokes the Counting Crows' Adam Duritz, Michael Penn, and a less shiny happy Michael Stipe. Joplin looks at life through gray-colored glasses, unloading the burdens of existence one moment and forgiving others for the weights they carry the next. Whether the topic is the two-tiered emotional facade of Tinseltown on "Camera One," the homesick melancholy of "Who's Afraid of Thomas Wolfe," or the admission that life will always have its pitfalls on "Gravity," Joplin unveils a somber, introspective worldview against a jangly pop that keeps the musical vibe light even as the emotions get heavy. --Jennifer Maerz
