Jim James on The Slip (from Rolling Stone)…

I usually don’t like bands when I see them for the first time. But this trio of Berklee College of dropouts blew my mind at the recent in Hunter, . At a show like that, you expect to hear a dude wail over a blues scale for half an hour, but are creative and weird: The drummer shakes it down a backbeat, the bassist plays a baritone guitar and the guitarist plays lots of crazy solos without losing the tight pop melody. Most things that are widely accepted suck, but hopefully these guys will be semi-widely accepted — because it’s really beautiful stuff.
