Review - Breakers

Artist: Cadiz


Although technically, Cadiz is a one-man band (that one man being Atlanta resident Robert Lee, formerly of King Lear Jet), the sound achieved on Breakers is that of a warm-blooded and full-bodied rock band. Thanks to the in-studio collaborative work of players like Anders Parker, Joe McGinty and others, Lee turned his home-studio demos into a creaky, crunchy blend of roots-rock and ghostly twang. Rich in both atmospherics and substantive songwriting, Breakers is an impressive debut that is similar to the work of Mojave 3, in that it's probably too lush for the No Depression set and too pedal steel-heavy for the shoe-gazers.
