The Summer Wardrobe

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
In forming their band, the Summer Wardrobe, guitarist Jon Sanchez and pedal steel guitarist John Leon seem to have been interested in pursuing the sonic possibilities of combining their respective instruments with Sanchez's tenor voice, and that turns out to be a mixture that evokes a lot of the country-rock sounds of the 1970s. If the band has an immediate antecedent, it's Poco, particularly in its days with Timothy B. Schmit, whose voice Sanchez matches, just as Leon seems chiefly influenced by Poco's steel guitar player, Rusty Young. At times, especially early on during this self-titled debut full-length album which follows an EP that was really long enough to be ...

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
In forming their band, the Summer Wardrobe, guitarist Jon Sanchez and pedal steel guitarist John Leon seem to have been interested in pursuing the sonic possibilities of combining their respective instruments with Sanchez's tenor voice, and that turns out to be a mixture that evokes a lot of the country-rock sounds of the 1970s. If the band has an immediate antecedent, it's Poco, particularly in its days with Timothy B. Schmit, whose voice Sanchez matches, just as Leon seems chiefly influenced by Poco's steel guitar player, Rusty Young. At times, especially early on during this self-titled debut full-length album which follows an EP that was really long enough to be considered an album, the Summer Wardrobe recall more pop
ock acts, such as Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers "Ned Kelly" and Dwight Twilley "Sparkle and Fade", in their allegiance to jangle pop. Later on, things get more exploratory; four of the last five tracks before the brief hidden track at the end are in the seven- to ten-minute range and find Leon stretching out into spacy improvisations on his instrument, achieving an effect akin to what the New Riders of the Purple Sage might sound like if they actually tried to play like the Grateful Dead. The members of the Summer Wardrobe are wise to realize that their various '70s models did not exhaust all the options of melodic, pedal steel-dominated country-rock, and they suggest some new avenues for investigation. Meanwhile, Sanchez writes some good songs that are more than just vehicles for the fancy fretwork.
