This ain’t your grandfather’s banjo music, but it sure is mine. A.K.A Gelbart‘s Banjo Tapes (birdsong) was a jolt to the senses and a joy to listen to. It’s vibrant and fun. Imagine a Mojo Nixon hoedown on Green Acres. Man, sometimes after listening to hours of electronic music, you just need the slap of reality, that twist of a guitar string, that punch of country and surf music. I’m not too familiar Gelbart as he has spent the last decade in electronic CD scene, and even though this might be a break for him, good music is good music. Download and have a fiddlin’ good time.
