Dorian Taj, Dorian Taj (Platypus) CD

The Beatles, The Byrds, Gram Parsons and Husker Du. How many bands would number these four amongst their influences? And how many of those would do anything more than sound either (a) derived or (b) crap? A small percentage, I think you'll agree. Dorian Taj is one of that select few, a verteran of a pile of Chicago bands I've never heard of (try Wait For Light, Articles of Faith, End Result) and now proud father of his own solo album. The record weaves together threads of Buffalo Springfield's country songwriting, Buffalo Tom's introspection and Buffalo Bill's restless spirit into a coherent whole. It's probably a lazy comparison, but Neil Young springs to mind. A class act.
