Deciduous - Sweetness and Gin

When I first caught Deciduous a couple years back, it was still Vanessa Benoit's "new band" (and she was still Vanessa Hanson, formerly of Vanessa's Entire Heart and other endeavours). Now, the psych/folk duo with Jason Benoit (guitar, banjo) has become a trio with drummer Chris Marr along for the ride — and settled into their sound, the group has an album to their credit. The music evokes back road trips into the woods, where mystery, mystical secrets, or some strange menace might beckon.
