Read ESOEBO VI's first review by Chris Spector/Midwest Record.
"ESOEBO/VI: Granted a recording studio will take anybody's money, do you think it's a co-incidence this off center duo recorded at John Prine's studio? All the right vibes are accordingly in the right places. With a wild mash up of sounds and attitudes that are disguised as nice folkie stuff, this is what your musical sweet tooth has been craving when it's on the prowl for something that colors so far outside the lines that it doesn't even acknowledge the lines---but it never rolls off the rails. It doesn't hurt they brought a real A team on board to flesh out the sound. The spirit of young Leon Redbone lives on! Fun stuff throughout.
