Scott Herren goes from cut-up hip-hop with his Prefuse 73 project to a more ambient, downtempo vibe as Savath & Savalas. And while one in not necessarily better than the other, Savath + Savalas' debut, FOLK SONGS FOR TRAINS, TREES AND HONEY, has a mesmerizing beauty that's sustained throughout. The quiet tones and repeating patterns of "Transportation Theme" are like watching clouds in the sky. Fragments of jazz woodwinds and guitar, backed with radio static, drift through on "Binoculars." The meandering stop-start of "F Ride + Blues" benefits greatly by having its mellow drums punctuate each interruption, even as static fills in the backdrop. "Journey's Home" has a folksy twang to it that seems perfectly suited for a postmodern Western. A moody, atmospheric album.
