Just off a worldwide 3-band tour with pop Icons Joe Jackson and Todd Rundgren performing for screaming crowds, Ethel takes the category "crossover" to new levels in this CD featuring favorites from their road-tested repertoire.
The long-awaited follow-up to their highly-acclaimed Cantaloupe debut has the string foursome veering in a new direction. Robust Americana and fiddle tunes from across the world, originals and new comissions fill a CD that's as danceable as it is thought-provoking.
"Downtown darlings Ethel must be having fun playing in a string quartet. How else to explain all those car noises, footsteps, bird chirps, parrot talk, cowboy yelps, rooster crows, cat meows and strains of Marvin Gaye, Texas swing, Brazilian folk and Appalachia on the group's new CD, Light? That's light as in light, fun-loving music."
