MV & EE With the Bummer Road Green Blues
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Ecstatic Peace!
Green Blues by MV (Matt Valentine) and EE (Erika Elder) is one of those albums you play before you go to sleep to downshift from the day's hustle and drift off into gently surreal dreams. The duo and their Bummer Road conspirators evoke an ectoplasmic outline of rural blues rather than a literal excavation of it, as the disc's seven long songs blissfully meander over spooky grounds. MV & EE fuse Grateful Dead's laidback country blues revivalism with Royal Trux's portentous acid folk in a reverent attempt to refit these venerable American genres to their own mystical specs.
