Slim Cessna's Auto Club - Unentitled
Engaging, riveting, sad and humorous; demanding the audience to participate both live and while listening to their albums—Slim Cessna’s Auto Club has been tagged with every musical description possible. This is fitting, as the group describes their music as American (Is that not what America is, a mixture of everything resulting in something new?); and after more than a decade of working and living as Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, they have created their own genre.
Unentitled is another high-water mark in the Auto Club’s career. The nine songs here are each thoughtfully crafted with unique arrangements, executed by superb musicianship and fully realized via original, insightful and intelligent lyrics. Tracks like “Three Bloodhounds, Two Shepherds, One Fila Brasileiro” add creepy lyrical imagery to their jaunty choruses. “Do You Know Thee Enemy?” uses Cessna’s trademark call-and-response vocals and “Hallelujah Anyway” has Munly serving as an ominous narrator.
Slim Cessna’s Auto Club has released a number of critically acclaimed albums on Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles label, and Spin Magazine and No Depression have described them as the best live band in America. With two of the most charismatic frontmen around and a tight-knit group of accomplished musicians, Slim Cessna’s Auto Club is the past, present and future of American music.
