Description

Moontower Raga on CD

New surprises as well as tried and true material abound in the Rivercity Seven's sophomore work, "Moontower Raga". A shifting of focus is definitely apparent from the opening track, as well as a more introspective writing style from Robert Froman's pen. This self-produced CD shows an evolution of the band's vision to a tighter, more cohesive sound. They've left the loose energy of the rowdy bar band for a more mature sound of a band realizing the potential of the songwriting craft, as well as incorporating even more global genres, including reggae, psychedelic Indian sitar grooves, and a conga-laden world beat. This due in part to newly-joined drummer and percussionist, Keith Duble, and longtime Austin jam-band veteran bassist and celloist, Frank Kammerdiener. The intertwining guitar leads of Austin stalwart guitarists John McClane and Adam Temple punctuate Froman's vocals and Hammond organ licks. Also included in this album are several re-recorded tunes of the band's earlier style of Honky Tonk and Texas Blues (Standard Issue Blues) and a revamped studio gem done in the Spaghetti Western style (High Plains Drifter), giving "Moontower Raga" a schizophrenic mood of differing styles of Cowboy meets Hippie, hopefully coexisting peacefully, and leaving the listener with the impression of a band on the move.
