Supergroup, side project, high-school-garage-band-of-brothers-from-other-mothers, whatever you wanna call it, the band formed to play a one off show in Big Sur and had so much fun they’re still at it. On guitar, Neal Casal (Circles around the Sun) sticks mostly to the acoustic allowing his elegant affinity towards melodic craft to shine. Cass McCombs’ guitar wizardry and acclaimed compositions are at their peak, and his raw, mostly first take vocals bring the core of the song to the forefront. And when you ask yourself – “What the hell was that sound I just heard!?” – it was probably Farmer Dave, the official leader and founder of the band, his keyboard/lap steel/harmonium work is the glue that holds the flotsam together. Dan Horne’s bass (Circles around the Sun) and Aaron Sperske’s percussion (Beachwood Sparks) are so intertwined it sounds like each of them are both playing drums and bass at the same time.
After the instant classic and record store rare find “SKIFFLIN’” (2015), The Skiffle Players are ready to release two new works. On July 20th, the “PIFFLE SAYERS” EP. The “PIFFLE SAYERS” EP is made up of a few gems from the SKIFFLIN’ sessions, a can be considered a companion piece to their debut LP. This foreshadows the release of a new full length album scheduled for this fall.
