New Earth Farmers
The Good Ones Got Away
The new release from New Earth Farmers produced by Paul Knowles and Peter Craft in Napa, CA at Boxer Lodge Studio.
"OH MARY, one of the standout tracks on the new album begins with an organ intro that washes over you, it soon becomes the kind of catchy folk-rocker that would make Tom Petty smile. There is a soulfulness to this tune that might come from the organ and piano, the religious references, or some combination of both. We also get some fine guitar solos to help this tune ascend into expansive rock territory. Lyrically, it also connects to our troubled times to give it a certain level of relevant potency." - Glide Magazine
“The new CD’s eight well-hooked, psychedelia-tinged rock and roll tracks harken back to late-period Beatles and other 1960s bands, so you won’t be surprised to learn that the set includes a cover of “Waiting Such a Long Time,” by World Party’s Karl Wallinger, who mines similar turf. It’s an enjoyable set whose biggest shortcoming may simply be that, with a playing time of just 25 minutes, it ends too soon.“ - The Aquarian Weekly
"Their voices are made up of blending. Blending superbly. Their songs are savoring through their delicate vocalizations, meticulous arrangements & resplendent instrumentation. Not as avant-garde or noirish as say The Blue Nile, or Prayer Boat but they do have that sense of fluidity running through their notes & tones." - Americana Highways
"The latest single (Judgement Day) from California’s New Earth Farmers is uplifting in both melody and spirit. Sure, the lyrics are somewhat forlorn but not without a sense of buoyancy. The song pays tribute to a life dedicated to music, closing with a sentiment likely shared by artists and listeners alike: “The music’s still going and I hope it doesn’t fade away.” - Twangville
