Bad Weather California
Bad Weather California's three-day residency with Akron/Family at Quixote's in May is still panning out. Not only is the eminent avant-folk band taking Bad Weather on tour later this month, but its members make a guest appearance on Live Jammers, a new, live Bad Weather EP released just in time for the road trip. Recorded in a living room during a snowstorm — and sounding accordingly intimate — these six tracks flawlessly capture Chris Adolf and crew's primal, soulful, shaggy psychedelia. Rangier and more atmospheric than the band's recent studio output, these loose yet focused renditions of "Lord Take Me Away" and "When I Die" feel perversely life-affirming. And then there's the Bo Diddley bombast of "Gimme More," a stomping call-and-response as sinuously sinful as some pagan ritual. That is, after all, what live music is supposed to be about.
