Trout Steak Revival

Flight

Independent

3.5 out of 5 stars

 

Like the fish in their name, Trout Steak Revival is a thing of subtlety. They’re not called Buffalo Steak Revival for a reason, they’re less obvious than that.

Trout Steak Revival isn’t going to earn any awards as the fastest or loudest bluegrass pickers with their newest release Flight. But the band may be in line to challenge many of those quick and ripping pickers when it comes to songwriting.

The Denver-based group formed in 2008 through a network of friends at backyard and sometimes backwoods parties, and part of Trout Steak’s charm is that jam-session-like looseness. But amidst that casual approach is some intensely focused attention to song structure and lyrics, backed by some very solid, yet not flamboyant, picking. Each member of the group turns in at least one original on Flight, in addition to a few re-arrangements of traditionals and one straight-up cover song, but even with that diversity, the common theme is a­ focus on the tradition of storytelling.
