On 'The Beauty Of Fake' Chinese guzheng (zither) resonates with pastoral flutes, Hawaiian guitars and the plangent tones of the Scandianvian Hardanger fiddle. Listening to the repetitive pluckings of the opener, 'The Rush', you can't help but think of Steve Reich's solo guitar trance-out 'Electric Counterpoint'. Elsewhere you'll hear echoes of Don Cherry's multicultural visions, the soaring harmonies of 'Rubber Soul'-era Beatles, and the magical open tunings of folk-rockers like David Crosby and Stephen Stills. Country music meets raga meets psychedelic sugar rush. The Last Hurrah!! did it again, and it feels damn good, fake or not.

Also available: THE BEAUTY OF FAKE (CD).
