Uneven production values do not derail this seasoned North Carolina outfit fronted by Paul Edelman, a performer who goes for a live, everybody’s-in-the-room ethos that embraces the occasional imperfection. On songs such as “Burnin A Hole,” “Chase It Down” and the sweet and laidback “New Wheels,” Edelman’s voice is honest and likeable, showing a genuine character that dovetails with the strumming, jangling thrust of the band. “Chase It Down,” in particular, demonstrates some tasty pickin’ skills. All in all, we’d urge the band to up- grade the level of its production, retaining the honesty but minimizing the imbalances that occur when featured instruments are poorly mixed.
