Futurebirds

The music is a patchwork amalgam of influences, including: twangy Southern rock (they've opened for the Drive-By Truckers), reverb-soaked psychedelia reminiscent of early My Morning Jacket or fellow Athens residents Phosphorescent, soaring guitar solos à la Neil Young and Crazy Horse, rhythmic jangle from that other Athens band, REM, multi-part vocal harmonies (which every band ought to have, dammit), and, weaving through it all, lyrical slide guitar.

Zeb Zaitz is the eponymous solo debut from the California singer-songwriter, formerly of Sparrows Gate. Produced by Kyle Field of Little Wings, mixed by Kyle Mullarky (Allah-Las, The Growlers), and featuring contributions from members of Sparrows Gate, Little Wings, and Sugar Candy Mountain, this 10 song collection sways from pacific ocean blues to late night FM gold. Equal parts Dennis Wilson, Ned Doheny, and JJ Cale, the record plays like a sunset drive through the hills of coastal California, salty air and eucalyptus streaming in through the open windows.
