Jethro Easyfields cracks me up. I did a piece on him for NUVO back in early 2009, just after the releases of his Elixer album. The Indianapolis singer/songwriter has a slanted, “kinda like-the Silo’s” take on Americana/alt-country. The shit is unique, but familiar. Isn’t that what makes great music ? Still, some of it is homemade Wilco-crazy shit. But if you hit the stuff on just the right minute of the right day, Jethro sounds like a cutting edge, American Hero music genius that Levon Helm would call a friend. But it’s always a slab of music that’s slightly askew.
As are his Facebook postings. Friend him, and join in the fun. Plus he has a new album “Bloodletting” apparently on the way, judging from a recent post, reprinted here. Rock on, my brother.
