Overview

When a band starts with a great name like Demolition String Band, a few catchy originals, and a cover of Madonna's "Like a Prayer," they're bound to be on the right track. Starting out as a bluegrass unit in 1996, vocalist Elena Skye and guitarist Boo Reiners morphed into a country band with real twang. Pulling up Atlantis follows their 1999 debut, One Dog Town, leaning heavy on hard-loving and hard-living honky tonk. "She Went outta Town" tells the familiar story of man who begins to drink and prowl as soon as his good woman's out of sight, while the title track conjures up the world of dreams buried far beneath the ocean's surface. Much of the band's sound relies on Skye's vocals, a rich country twang with a contemporary edge, and Reiners' electric guitar. Reiners also lends his voice to most of the choruses for affecting harmony. It would be easy for someone unfamiliar with the band to bypass many of the fine originals on Pulling up Atlantis and go straight to "Like a Prayer." Perhaps it's the novelty combo of Madonna and country music, but it's also a good version, complete with an upbeat shuffle and progressive drumming by Phil Cimino. A good sophomore effort, Pulling up Atlantis offers a healthy dose of the real thing to alternative country fans.
