I want to take you on a little adventure to a world of music that is probably far different than to what you know and love. It's a land of prairie grass that grows so high, you can just barely see Pink Floyd and if you squint just enough, there is Phish in the back, way back.

This world is that of the Chicago band Califone. Well in to their career, Califone takes a slight venture from their previous albums to create a more mainstream sound. That said, this mainstream sound is still quite eccentric. Roots and Crowns is an experimental album, where so many interesting clicks and clacks show up, that I'm not even sure I know what I'm listening to. Perhaps most intriguing about he band is there ability to jam-it's so incredibly fluid and natural, much like their music as a whole.

I'm not promising that you're going to love this album. I don't know if you'll even like it. But it's certainly worth a listen.

Like the songs? Buy the album.
