Old Time Assault, a clawhammer banjo group from St. Louis, Missouri has recently released their first major album, Caxtons. Caxtons is certainly an ode to folk music and its rugged roots. This banjo-centered composition has a very acoustic feel throughout. With music approaching a point in which it could be considered overwhelming, the appeal becomes prominent. It would be especially useful for easy listening on an afternoon in the house or a quiet moment.  Take time to appreciate the rugged and uncut features of the vocals and instrumentation. The fiddle also serves as a notable flavor throughout the album, occasionally stealing the melody and providing a warm sound. I would recommend this album for shows that focus more on easy listening or folk-based themes.
