Brown Shoe - The Wheat Patch Review
by Sherrill Fulghum
This quartet from the northern California city of Folsom sound very much like an English version of Iceland's Sigur Ros. But Brown Shoe is much more than a Sigur Ros sound a like band. This foursome's debut CD The Wheat Patch is a collection of 12 original tunes that blends the ambient sound of new age with some good old fashioned rock'n'roll guitar music. And then the lads throw in some non-traditional rock music instruments like spoons and a banjo into the mix for good measure. The vocal harmonies from all four band members combine for a perfect mix with the ambient sounds of the new age style music.
Sigur Ros may have started the move toward the idea of new age rock, but Brown Shoe is here to make sure the genre is here to stay for some time to come.
