G. Love: Fixin' To Die

G. Love has been operating on the fringe of the jam band scene. A welcome guest on the festival circuit, he never really made it to the spotlights. Teaming up with the Avett Brothers, an rootsy Americana act on the rise, could be a wise career move in terms of sales.

His new album Fixin' To Die is the result of that partnership. Everything is cool and froody as long as stays on the bluesy back roads, but tons of fail abound when he tries his hand at seminal sad songs such as The Velvets' Pale Blue Eyes and Paul Simon's 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover. He just sounds too cheerful delivering those lyrics.
