If youre a fan of traditional American music of just about any sort, you are likely to have heard at least a few of the songs on SHAKEN BY A LOW SOUND, the debut album on Signature Sounds for Boston-based roots band Crooked Still. Theres a Bob Dylan song here (a revved-up version of Oxford Town), a classic Robert Johnson tune there (a gender-bending Come On My Kitchen) and a Bill Monroe number way over yonder. Plus, there are a bunch of traditional songs some fairly well known, some obscure to even the deepest miners of such music. But no matter how familiar you may be with some of these songs, you have never heard them played this way. Crooked Still takes melodic songs with fertile histories. They strip them down. Then they rebuild them in a spirited, fun and twisted way, a way that is all their own. Calling their sound unique may be the understatement of the year. Tracks: Cant You Hear Me Callin / Little Sadie / New Railroad / Oxford Town, Cumberland Gap / Lone Pilgrim / Come On In My Kitchen / Aint No Grave / Ecstasy / Mountain Jumper / Railroad Bill / Wind And Rain.
