The Hillary Step

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
A jam band beloved from Berkeley to Boulder to Asheville despite their rather naff name -- which sounds like the name a writer from The Simpsons would give a hippie-ish, Americana-infused jam band for satiric purposes -- Jupiter Coyote have distilled their sound to a certain kind of perfection on Hillary Step. Unfortunately, perfection is not necessarily a virtue in the world of jam bands, a genre where spontaneity is prized above all else. There are very few spontaneous moments on their eighth album, just one three-and-a-half to five-and-a-half-minute mid-tempo pop song with occasional bluegrass and country touches after another. There are no extended improvisatory ...

There are no extended improvisatory segments -- even the nearly eight-minute closer, the lovely and mostly acoustic "Fade," never really cuts loose -- and the self-produced album has all the gloss of Hootie & the Blowfish unsurprisingly, Darius Rucker makes a guest vocal appearance and none of the excitement that a truly great jam band is supposed to generate. The admittedly catchy "Falling" is tailor-made for AAA radio stations in vegetarian coffeehouses throughout the college towns of the land, but settling for being the Spin Doctors when you have it in you to be a southern-fried Phish is just sad.

    This is definitely Jupiter Coyote's best effort, and that garnishes six stars in itself!!

    Seriously, and without prejudice, I am absolutely astounded at what was coming through my speakers the first time I put this disc on. This will be one of those select albums that once you listen to it completely, you'll start it over and listen to it again. The boys have written a studio album instead of writing an album that was trying to duplicate their live sound. Noel Felty, the drummer, wrote four of the songs and takes over lead vocals on three. John Felty lays down some of his best work resulting in a project full of harmonizing vocals and layers of instruments that are clear and concise, that normally would simply be lost in a live setting. There are 28 layers of instrumentation alone in the song "Today." Matthew Mayes plays his banjo and guijo (his custom guitar/banjo hybrid)with such fervor that you can feel his emotion coming through the speakers. Steve Trisman simply sets his fiddle on fire. One of the first things I did when I received the disc (it's available now on freshtracksmusic.com as well as jupitercoyote.com) was to break out a pair of headphones so I could fully appreciate all this album has to give. Again, without bias, the band has simply outdone themselves this time. And that is just the album!! The DVD is the full concert from April 3, 2003 from the Windjammer in Charleston, SC. The concert is presented in 2:35:1 aspect, in full 5.1 surround sound. Your sub will certainly get a great workout with Sanders Brightwell on the bass. Special guests include Darius Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish and Hank Futch and Bobby Houck from the Blue Dogs. Count Mbutu also sat in on the entire show. Without avoiding all of the typical clichés of a record review, do yourself a favor and pick this up as soon as possible, but also contact me to let me know what you think. Congratulations, fellas.
