Juniper Rising - s/t (Burger Records)

Twangy and jangly, Juniper Rising sound surprisingly un-Brooklyn on their Burger Records s/t tape. There's a helluva lotta country-rock in this band's garage-pop. The group explore Americana music strains and they do it well. Dig "Running Through the Wildwood" for an example of the almost-kaleidoscopic take on music history. Kinda like the Carter Family with electricity and urban-rock attitude (minus the southern geographic realness), Juniper Rising offer a breezy listening experience on this short five song collection. I'd recommend this cassette and a great many releases put out by Burger Records!
