Perhaps the best way to describe Upstate New York's Felice Brothers is that they are a cross between Vincent Gallo and the Band; that is, they simultaneously ooze a sort of unwashed hipster sleaze (they are proudly self-professed "scumbags") and authentic, otherworldly Americana. As to the music on Tonight at the Arizona, it is the real deal - in spades. Theirs is a new-millennium slant on the kind of poetical, fractured prism of America that critic Greil Marcus once exalted over in describing Bob Dylan and the Band.

The Felice Brothers have some amazing songs and are natural performers. Not just in the singer's voice, but with the melancholy and poetic rhythm of the songs. I just purchased the album and am glad to say that they didn't overdo it at the studio.

There’s a real end-of-the-party quality to Tonight At The Arizona, but not in a bad way. Even if the songs are shot through with Dylanesque vocalizing (and, to a lesser extent, the musical colours and harmonies of The Band), this album remains more closely related to Townes Van Zandt’s output, or perhaps Neil Young’s hippy requiem, Tonight’s The Night. With a drunken, druggy storytelling style, it can’t quite decide if it’s a wedding or a wake
The Felice Brothers may actually sound more like Bob Dylan than Bob Dylan does. I started listening to Roll on Arte, the first track on Tonight at the Arizona, and it was instantly familiar to me. It could have been Dylan’s lyrics and voice muttering words of hope to a friend as I heard Roll on Arte, roll on. Your heart’s too good for this town. It’s a perfect start to a very solid album. Bonus points for coming up with cover art that reminds me of Pale Rider
