the west texas revival group is the recording project name for the songs of ohio songwriter eli fishelson. the tunes on his new 'hastily arranged EP' are simply presented but rootsily played, with some good finger picking that doesn't take itself too seriously to grade into folk punk strumming.
the lyrics have a wry and sarcastic point of view, often times twisting towards the darkly humorous. the tune 'are you into the mountain goats' is a pretty funny parody of 'the murder mystery' by the velvet underground and also how drunken conversations between pop music aficionados go. been there, except i've never in my life discussed the mountain goats.
get it here.
