Something Wicked This Way Strums
Scarecrow Revival explores the darker side of Americana. With a gravelly rasp, Don Alles leads the group from his Gretsch resonator guitars, that give them a tone that is part bluegrass and part ancient blues. Add to that Kevin Rundeen on rhythm guitar and Johnny Cajon on box for percussion and the sound is certainly a throwback to another time and place.
Scarecrow Revival recorded 22 songs during a single recording session and 14 of those tracks made it on Something Wicked This Way Strums which, quite frankly should have included a vinyl hiss and skips to accentuate the throw-back theme and vibe of the record.
