Growden, Mark – “Lose Me In The Sand” – [Porto Franco Records]

This is a fine release steeped in Americana. Banjo-pickin???, clear-singing Growden performs here with his Tucson String Band. Fiddles, accordion, banjo, mandolin, upright bass, and acoustic guitar accompany these songs, primarily written or arranged by Growden, with the exception of a cover of a song sung by Aretha Franklin (1, with lyrics rewritten by Growden) and another of Bruce Springsteen (4). There???s not a song on here that doesn???t have some kind of down-home goodness to offer. There???s even an acoustic mashup of The Star-Spangled Banner and Mercedes Benz (10).
