Product Description

Give the drummer some'-James Brown. You might already know Tim O'Reagan through his work with the Jayhawks, for whom he played drums as well as wrote such songs as 'Tampa to Tulsa' that were strong enough to find a place among those of bandleader Gary Louris. Those days are over for O'Reagan, whose self titled debut is not what you might expect from a drummer who's stepping out on his own. His style is conversational, understated, and richly emotional. With his melodic blend of Americana folk-rock and British pop from a bygone era, it's not hard to discern the Dylan and Lennon influences, but in the end his voice is like none other: vintage, aggressive at times, a little sly and ironic, haunting, and ultimately unforgettable.

This shimmering sleeper of a solo debut should surprise even diehard fans of the Jayhawks, the band in which Tim O'Reagan played a comparatively low-profile role as the drummer. Here, his homespun pop with psychedelic glimmers features lush harmonies, buoyant melodies, offbeat arrangements (including his dad as guest whistler on the opening "These Days"), and multi-instrumental overdubbing by O'Reagan (supported by Jayhawks alums and kindred spirits). The results suggest an unlikely blend of a rootsier Left Banke, a cheerier Elliott Smith, and a heartland George Harrison. The yearning "River Bends," with its steel guitar, would have been a highlight on any Jayhawks album. --Don McLeese
