In Other Banjo News…

October 23, 2008

Travis Stever, the guitarist of Coheed & Cambria, has an album out with his new band Davenport Cabinet and, while the vocals aren’t very exciting (that’s why he’s the guitarist), there’s a lot of banjo all over the place, which surprised me. I’m dropping in my “emo folk” folder, to join — the only other entry — Bright Eyes’ Lifted Or the Story is in the Soil, Keep Your Ear to the Ground. Not bad company, really. If you just wanna pick up one Davenport Cabinet track, I suggest the first track, “Square One,” which is an instrumental that opens with that unmistakable twang.
