Elephant Rest Home Elephant Rest Home CD (1999)

Dieselhed CD discography Arcata, CA's fun, Ween-like Dieselhed released this honey-slow anomaly with Bong Load Records, perhaps to emphasize their sleepier honky tonk capabilities. They are an awfully versatile (never say "eclectic" within earshot of drummer and spokesman Danny Heifetz -- he's sick of hearing that) band, after all -- their previous three records are fairly combustive and, well, weird. What does remain true to the Dieselhed standard established by their earlier efforts is a distinct and reverent country & western tradition that never contradicts essential tenets of punk and understated alt-funk. There is a solid songwriting aesthetic continued here, too, defined by swift and selective storytelling, and as long as the lyrics remain decipherable we're in for many strange good treats. On "Futon Song," for example, we're let in on the minutiae of a band's life on the road, as explained by the "narrator" in the song: "We were trying to track down the PA/Which reminds me: can you bring it back?/'Cause the music store's closed on Tuesdays." The concept may not be high, but it can bring on a cool little chuckle. A producer at Dieselhed's former label Amarillo pleaded to include "Tying Flies" on an earlier album, but the song never ...

Tales Of A Brown Dragon Tales Of A Brown Dragon CD (1995)

Dieselhed music CDs The hillbilly punk-rock explorations of Arcata, CA.'s Dieselhed get even stronger on their sophomore effort, Tales of a Brown Dragon. The band has wisely cut back on the meandering (and sometimes overlong) compositions that prevented their self-titled debut from being a complete success. Dieselhed has also focused and improved the quality of their songwriting, which makes Tales possibly their best and most consistent album. From the guitar chicken-pickin' of "Brown Dragon" and "Butcher Boy" (both contain rambunctious choruses that provide a sharp contrast to the rest of the song) to the speedy hoedown "Pizza Box," this is simply alternative country at its finest. The soothingly experimental "Baby Song" is a new sound ...

Dieselhed discography On Dieselhed's self-titled debut, the band introduces the listener to their good ol' countryfied-punk rock & roll. There are lots of roaming bass, guitar, and violin lines, with group-sung verses and choruses. The band also likes to have fun, as evidenced in the humorous and heartbroken country goof "Poodles Ear" (which sports the lyrics "She's got a bandana on a Panama hat autographed by Billy Squier; a poster of Vince Neil in front of a brick wall of barbed wire and fire"). Another track with crafty words is "Greyhound," which talks about what the band eats for breakfast. "Hash Browns" opens up the album on an eerie note, with a similar sound ...
Chico And The Flute Chico And The Flute CD (2000)
CD Check Availability  Details
Dieselhed songs Dieselhed's fifth studio album, Chico and the Flute, proves once again why this quintet from Arcata, CA is one of the most subtly brilliant bands you've probably never heard of. By escorting listeners on a mellow, ambient country-rock roller coaster ride, this album weaves through genres scarcely known and genres yet to be defined. It's hard to explain what makes Dieselhed such an original ensemble. Perhaps it's because their unique sound seems to come to them so naturally. If they weren't singing about Thai food, loaded brownies, and pigeon-feeding, you might feel inclined to classify them as "country." But their energy, their metaphors, their gorgeous rock harmonies, will always keep comparisons to Nashville ...
