Niece Of Tapir Just Didn't Work

Son Of Bison are Eagle Rock's local avant folk rock heroes. Heavily influenced by Robert Pollard of Guided By Voices, John Wyatt's succinct acoustic tunes rely on story telling and delicate arrangements to deliver a bevvy of different emotions. Whether that be concession ("Drinking Toll"), depression ("Leaving Town"), or confession (pretty much every song on Thermos).

Wyatt's ability to take on a musical genre (singer/songwriter) that's literally overflowing with banal and trite artists and inject it with a fresh and interesting perspective is applaudable. At the same time Thermos' song arrangements are stark and simple, much like the lyrical content.
