eliot eidelman is a rambling songwriter whose latest album is called '5 spirits'. there are a range of vibes present...lonely folk, gentle pastoral psychedelia, frenzied rock, all done in a novel way. the lyrics have a dark-cosmic-americana point-of-view. eliot's singing can go from a relaxed drawl to a frantic yelp as needed.
as much as i try to eschew comparisons, between the lap steel, back beat, and loose-slung guitars, this thing will hit some of your ditch-era neil young or palace-era will oldham (or somewhere in between) buttons. 'laura' is a heavy jam. recommended. tons of lyrical references bob dylan fans will catch.
