Takin' on the Rain
Madison, Wisconsin's old-time/Americana/folk-rock trio Calicodrifters has released it's second full-length CD entitled 'Takin' On The Rain'. This new collection of thirteen original songs is a follow-up to their critically acclaimed first CD, 'Dreams Are The Ponies We Ride' released in 2006. In this age of single-song downloads and cherry-picking favorites from iTunes and other digital media outlets, Calicodrifters has crafted a recording that hearkens back to the days of project albums. 'Takin' On The Rain' is a collection of pieces that fit with each other in succession; that flow from start to finish; and that carry the listener along from one story to the next. Sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes whimsical, but always with an ear towards poetry, beautiful melody, and exquisite songwriting, Calicodrifters has produced an exciting new CD that is a pleasure to listen to again and again.
