I love it when music like this new self-titled album from Color Green comes my way. Their music is cut from the same fabric as many of my favorite bands, such as Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, Phish, and Flaming Lips. Formed in Queens, but now based in Los Angeles, Color Green is comprised of co-founders Noah Kohll and Corey Madden. Together this duo creates a dreamy eight-track cocktail of roots-based rock.
“Warbling Sky” tranquilly floats through the gate first. riding atop a layer of pedal steel from Tim Ramsey and a Dead-inspired bridge which explodes with energy. It’s magnificent. Upbeat and slightly twangy, “Ill Fitting Suit” is another fun one. With a hook that says “you pay your dues, I’ll pay mine”, this song would easily compel a field of hippies to dance. With Madelyn Strutz on banjo, “Bell of Silence” is one that soothes the soul with its beautiful, lush melody and hypnotizing harmonies. Another bonified favorite track “Blizzed Out” swings to a Seventies southern rock groove. This honey-hole of a track is bodaciously slathered in slide guitar and peppered with unexpected cosmic attacks. It’s absolutely brilliant.
I highly recommend this album. Color Green is a terrific listen from start to finish.
