The Loomis Fargo Gang: The Prettiest Shade of Blue

The Loomis Fargo Gang is a Virginia based folk and Americana band. The band includes: Michael Boder, Winky Nash, Michael Pilapil, Matthew Michels, and Brad Martin. Unfortunately the band does not designate which instruments or vocals were performed by which members.

The album opens with "Seventeen White Azaleas", which could fit comfortably on any of the Fleet Foxes albums. They have that similar echo vocal quality to their performance. They also fill the surrounding air with that familiar acoustic guitar soundscape which creates its own magic.

The rest of the album is similar in style with "Lazy, Hazy, Blue bringing back memories of the Lovin' Spoonful or even at times some of the Grateful Dead's slower tracks, only with that appropriate Southern drawl.

"Plantin' Blueberries" is another relaxing signature tune that develops well with slowly picked acoustic guitar.

This is comfortable relaxing, summer breeze kind of music. The album cover art does a great job describing the type of music held within. Perfect for relaxing on the porch, closing your eyes with a clear blue sky above, or out in a field on a picnic blanket with a close friend.
