Hundred Year Flood’s
music is ultimately defined by its Southwestern roots:
the band’s new home is Santa Fe via their old
stomping grounds of Austin. From the twangy sound of “Come
On” through the country western ramblings of “Let’s
Fall in Love Again Tonight” to the album’s “Outro” Cavalier provides
a somewhat eclectic sound assemblage of Americana.
The lead vocals alternate
nicely between Felicia Ford and Bill Palmer. And the
intensity picks up on songs like a “Gamblin,” which—thanks
to its shimmering crash of guitar sound—coats
the album with touches of modern, across-the-pond rock.
Throughout, Cavalier offers an intriguing variety
of songwriting and musicianship that always entertains.
