The Great Book of John is the newest project from erstwhile Wild Sweet Orange man, Taylor Shaw. The band’s self-titled sophomore effort arrives August 16th thanks to the fine folks at Communicating Vessels, and if lead track Robin Hood is a worthy indicator, you best make extra room for this record on the CD rack. Sounding a little like Jeff Buckley fronting Pink Floyd, Robin Hood has apparently been given the deluxe treatment by producer Jeffery Cain (Remy Zero, Dead Snares) and Grammy Award-winning engineer Darrell Thorp (Radiohead, Beck, Outkast). This tune sounds big. Huge in fact, thanks to densely-layered guitars and jaw-dislocating drums, all serving to float Shaw’s impressionistic lyrics, which call to mind fellas with surnames like Cohen and Dylan. Not bad company to keep. Not a bad band to keep an eye on.
