MP3 A Cautionary Tale - Let New Days Dawn
Adventurous debut album from Portland, OR favorites involves an intricate classical/flamenco guitar premise, skittish breakbeats, tasteful jazz guitar monologues, cunning bass lines, crooning vocals and saxophone, creating a darkly unique indie rock mood.

ROCK: Modern Rock, LATIN: Flamenco
The Portland Mercury said the following kind words:
A Cautionary Tale is made up of Chris Glaab (bass, sax), Rich Boles (classical guitar, xylophone), Nick O''Donnell (bass, jazz guitar), Kevin van Geem (drums), with each member handling vocals. The local combo cites acts like Pinback, Pharaoh Sanders, and Black Eyes as influences, and their sound is somewhere in the midst of said heavyweights with a little loungey, Latin flavor to sweeten the deal. Much like the Black Heart Procession''s salsa-fied Amore del Tropico, when these locals are on, their mix of indierock and world music is downright intoxicating.
