The bedrock of this NJ-based concoction is folk, but there's no headband and King Darves (Asps, Gorgot, Human Adult Band) does not sing about pixies in the moss. This is somewhere between rolled cigs and the foggy vision of Big Pink from somewhere on Jersey Avenue. “An excursion into mountain man folk music, with a few surprises thrown into the mix here and there,” as Smooth Assailing puts it, “Pure and earthy.” This one-man Meat Puppets with a deep, rich voice has really cobbled something together in his kitchen sink –- a shocker, a pleaser, a toe-tapper, a head-nodder.
