Album Review

Orso – “Long Time By ” – [Perishable]

Thurston Hunger   10/1/2005   A Library, CD

On the outskirts of Americana and Popville
there’s a saloon that brews retrodated,
antiquated spirits. Neil Young’s “A Man
Needs a Maid” spooks the jukebox, the taps
spill Palace, Lambchop, and Vic Chestnut
into mugs….hell, I’ll drink their wells
dry. This is the second indispensible
Perishable product from Red Red Meat/Loftus
minstrels — striving for porch-fi, but
winding up as the best-dressed hobo hoppin’
the freight. Frilly cozies on every guitar,
banjo bliss, harmonica heaven…an easy
drawl and delivery. They create doleful dusty
environs, then whet your wistful whistle.
Bottom’s up….
