WhiteWater Ramble have a style and sound, much of it based upon vintage influences, that help them stand out from the crowd. Right off the bat, “3 Minutes 2 Spare” delivers an infectiously grooving instrumental that leads to a clavinet solo that’s pretty sweet. We only wish the song’s vocals brought more power to the party. Well, we got our wish with “This Ol’ Guitar,” an all-out swing-band celebration (“music makes me whole!”) with interesting horn parts and a strong, authoritative lead vocal. It’s just fun to hear all those instruments having a great time together. The band downshifts to the breezy, banjo-fueled, deep-woods folk of “Hollow” where the instrumental blend is again top-notch.
