Your Daily Lick: Calaveras

Green Girl (Fennel & Mustard Records)



Calaveras' jam-friendly folk would sound best from the lawn of a sun-soaked outdoor festival. On record, the experience is somewhat muted - but not lost in translation. The Lafayette trio plays with plenty of spirit, especially on a song like "Club Paradise," though subsequent track "Driving Him Away" is overly mellow and melodramatic.
