Free Friday: Caleb Groh - "Down, Dakota!" EP

Boston-based singer-songwriter Caleb Groh, who also has recorded under the moniker Happiest Lion, just released his new album Bottomless Coffee on his Bandcamp page this week for the low price of $5.  The 14-track album features contributions from his friends in the Cincinnati psych-pop band the Pomegranates.  His dusty and weary old-fashioned folk rock features his descriptive lyrics that focus on Biblical and historical figures, sung with a traditional folk narrative. 

Last October, in anticipation for the new album, he released an excellent 4-song EP titled, Down, Dakota! as a free download on his Bandcamp page.  "All That Sultry Summer Long" opens the EP with some plucky bluegrass and a stomp and clap rhythm on the Gospel-soaked folk song.  "Matter Of Moons" follows with an Appalachian talk/sung acappella with a hint of Bob Dylan in the vocals.  The country-rock shuffle of "Cairo" stands out with a warble-mouthed vocal delivery, and the EP closes with the mournful yet jaunty "Tegucigalpa".
