Missing-CoverCactus Pears – Snacks for Slacks – CD
(EFB Records) This band reminds me a little bit of Wilco, Son Volt and other alt-country acts out there, with an edgy sense of cynicism and twangy melodies, but Cactus Pears incorporates a spacier/surfer feel to some of its guitars and drum fills. The instrumentation deserves note, too, since beyond the drums/guitar/bass thing, Cactus Pears uses mandolin and cello accompaniment as well. The songwriting and harmonies are lilting and tug on the heart; at times, the band’s sound brings to mind comparisons with Tod Weidner and Shrug, equal bits folk, rock and pop.
