The folks who make up Cedar Teeth are not only great musicians, but they are also a warm group of individuals who have been friends for over 15 years. When you’re in their presence, it’s clear that they are a tight-knit group. Really, Cedar Teeth are not just a band, but a family; and there’s something communal about how they perform their music, which is apparent not only in their vocal harmonies, but also in the way that they respect each other as musicians—and provide sonic landscapes for one another to shine with their instruments.
Cedar Teeth’s new EP, Farewell To Green Mountain, is a stellar follow-up to their freshman release, Hoot, from 2014. It brings together their eclectic rock and roll influences into a refined and focused folk rock sound. It has everything that was wonderful about Hoot, but with some new added character and groove. The addition of multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Erin Corzine adds a dynamic to Cedar Teeth that seems to complete this band.
Farewell To Green Mountain not only shows off how talented this band is instrumentally, but it also showcases how good of a songwriter frontman Dylan Martell is—a song like “Winter” is a perfect example of that songwriting strength.
For anyone who is already a fan of Cedar Teeth, this record will not disappoint. And this new collection of six songs is bound to draw in a new crowd of listeners, especially for those who enjoy artists such as Neil Young and The Band.
