Nodding Tree Remedies - "Alan Alda" (Single) TDRCO-020

In the land of Indie-Folk, somewhere between the hinterland territories occupied by the likes of Bon Iver and Jeff Mangum, Nodding Tree Remedies have found a little glen and planted a flag. While there might be something aesthetically familiar about Nodding Tree Remedies new single, “Alan Alda,” there’s certainly nothing commonplace about it. A quickly down-strummed acoustic sets a quick rhythm before a man’s heavily reverbed falsetto comes in singing about . . . you guessed it, Alan Alda—that guy from M.A.S.H. If whimsical humor isn’t your thing however, worry not. The song is extremely pretty, and NTR does a fine job of layering in slides, horns, shakers, and exploding drums in such a tasteful fashion that it’s nearly impossible not to be either impressed, intrigued, or finally, charmed. Besides, there’s much to appreciate about a band that takes what it does seriously, without taking itself seriously at all. (Hutch Hill, June 5, 2012)
