No, there's no goat on here. Instead, we're treated to Danny Barnes (Bad Livers, plus solo) and Pete Krebs (Hazel, Golden Delicious, solo stuff) hanging out at Danny's home studio doing some wacky recording. Mr. Barnes has been upsetting many by playing banjo to drum machine beats lately, and luckily this is no different. A respect for the past is obvious with covers of "House Carpenter" and "Why You Been Gone So Long" but electronic beats, synthesizers, distorted vocals and an irreverent version of Hazel's "Jilted" evince a playfulness that draws the listener in. This is truly digital folk music - we are lucky the technology is there to create and capture this kind of fun.
