Pokey LaFarge steps into the present with a sound firmly routed in the past, pulling in ragtime, country and a dash of the blues. Something In The Water would be the perfect album for the listener who has already exhausted the back-catalogue of traditional American song but still wants that feel. On Rounder.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 7th September 2016This music sounds more than ever as though someone went back in a time machine with great audio equipment and recorded one of the greatest acoustic songsters of the early 1930s -- *or* maybe Pokey LaFarge invented a time machine back then and came here to the present to bring us this brilliant vintage music packed with blues, jazz, and country roots. Everything about Pokey -- his vocal qualities, his songwriting, his instrumentation, even his face -- speaks of that brilliant era of American music
