I play The Byrds every chance I get, Chestnut Mare is one of my all time favs. I grew up looking up to all of the Laurel Canyon gang. Me and Peter Case go way back to Old Blue Car days. And don’t even get me started on X . Which brings us all the way up to 2014. To me it looks like its the summer of love meets the Village and Cafe Wha? if your keeping up with this little rant. Cashew & Cleary look and sound like they good be Gram Parsons kids, or maybe David Crosbys’ either way it’s obvious that they are filling a void that needs to be filled. “Stoned with a smile” could describe the experience of listening to Cashew & Cleary . Like I’ve said a thousand times, I’m not a critic, I just enjoy good tunes. These two are way past cool. So light up, turn up the volume , close your eyes and its 1967 getting all mixed up with 2014. FANTASTIC!!! and LOVE IT!!!
