New Music Critique: Kevin Fisher

Musicianship 8

Husky-voiced hophead Kevin Fisher shows an uncommon obsession with suds on three clever and crafty songs. “Beer” is a spirited tune whose chorus (“Beer, that’s why we’re all here!!!”) is custom-brewed to get a rowdy roadhouse crowd on their feet. Fisher gets all sad and sorrowful (and a tad serious) on “Beer Blue Sky” where the singer moons over the loss of an old flame. He rebounds, however, with “I Wish You were Beer.” It’s his most interesting number as it depicts a couple, totally over each other, as they mope listlessly through their tropical vacation. The song’s Jimmy Buffet glow comes complete with Caribbean flavors and festive South of the Border trumpets. Fisher is not to be underestimated.
