Chris Colepaugh and the Cosmic Crew Trip

Moncton's Chris Colepaugh and Lynn Daigle are the Cosmic Crew, and they transform this Eastern community into a rolling and rocking landscape where one swears they can actually see the Golden Gate Bridge off in the horizon. Their unique blues are warm, and their frolicking country jam folk isn't as retro sounding when set aside some moments of psychedelic stringiness. The spirits of Hendrix, Grateful Dead, Eric Clapton and definitely Santana are heard coughing in the background, but the material is fresh enough not give anyone emphysema. (Independent)
