CD Review: Tribes Hill: We’re All Here
by Robert Burke Warren, May 27, 2011
Tribes Hill is a thriving lower Hudson Valley-based label that also functions as an industrious non-profit collective of diverse folk musicians deeply committed to bringing people together through song. We’re All Here, the organization’s fourth release, furthers their mission by packing 34 quality tracks onto two CDs. It’s a troubadour smorgasbord; young and old, slick and quirky, political and personal, trad and experimental. Although acoustic string instruments abound, Tribes Hill is certainly not shy about allowing the occasional drummer into the party or letting the funky guitarist plug in. The house concert may still draw the cops.
While the divergent styles promise something for everyone, there are strong connecting threads on We’re All Here: All acts promote the Pete Seeger-inspired template of strength through community, all are New York-based, and all are hell bent on getting you to sing along. And you will. To Abbie Gardner’s aching waltz “Crazy in Love,” Phil Dollard’s crustily wise “Whirligig of Time,” Marc Black’s jazzy “I Love My Coffee,” Red Molly’s testifyin’ “Keep Your Lamp Trimmed and Burning,” young buck Anthony Da Costa’s funky “Love Is Not Enough,” David Goldman’s unapologetically rocking “Blue Collar Town,” KJ Denhert’s sleekly sexy “Beautiful,” and the synthy, echo-laden harmonies of Eddie Denise’s “The Equation.” There are, of course, many other song wielders, some who want to charm, some who wish to inspire, a couple who seem intent on annoying you, but you’ll be glad you let them in. When the grid goes down, these folks will rule. www.tribeshill.com
