AxeHammerSaw -- Skeleton Key

Sometimes, you can tell a lot about a band from their name. If a band's name is too clever by half, chances are its music will similarly be preoccupied by wit, rather than artistry.

I was worried that AxeHammerSaw would be that band. See, the name refers to the three instruments featured in the band (guitar, banjo, saw.) But I couldn't pass up the opportunity to hear what a musical saw sounded like.

Fortunately, I was wrong about the music.

And, in case you're wondering, the saw sounds a little like a theramin. 


I could tell you about the band's lyricism, or their catchy melodies, or how it must take some serious skill to get a bent piece of metal to make those sounds, but instead, I bring you the ultimate stamp of approval:

My roommate walked into the room as I was listening to Skeleton Key. He said, "Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeyyyyyyyy! For once, I like what you're listening to!"
