One Dog Town (North Hollow Records)

One Dog TownVILLAGE VOICE: “The Hoboken based Ms. Skye and her boys have released a fetching new album “One Dog Town” featuring her lovely vocals and mandolin and the instrumental prowess of Boo Reiners.”

NEW YORK TIMES: “One Dog Town is a collection of eleven songs written by Elena Skye whose skeletal sound and skeletal instrumental has drawn comparisons to Cowboy Junkies and Son Volt”

DATELINE MEMPHIS: “The DSB’s raw energy and pared down instrumentation on its new CD One Dog Town have more in common with Elvis’ Sun Sessions than with most country records coming out of Nashville today.”

CHARLOTTE OBSERVER: “This quartet concocts a buffet of American roots music styles, you get bluegrass, honky tonk and Patsy Cline-esque country balladry. You even get a heaping serving of spicy Tex-Mex flavor with “I’ll Try Not To Cry Tonight.” The result is a sumptuous feat for the ears.”

CREATIVE LOAFING: “ Skye and musical partner Boo Reiners play the leading parts in this Patsy Cline meets Lester Flatt melodrama quite adeptly, straddling bluegrass and honky tonk-ish rock. They do it lean and mean or smooth and comforting but the results are almost always pretty doggone glorious.”

DAVID GOODMAN, AUTHOR OF “MODERN TWANG”: “Let me be the first to rave about Elena Skye & The Demolition String Band’s new CD “One Dog Town.” Those of you who are lucky enough to have Edges2 are already familiar with her whimsical shuffle “Biggest Piece of Nothing” which is the lead song on this excellent collection of honky tonk, bluegrass, country rock , a little tex-mex and more. It is highly appealing from beginning to end!“
