Dear Ulysses (LP) – Jon Drake & The Shakes

On the debut album from Chicago’s octet of ramshackle elite, Jon Drake & The Shakes find their eclectic yet focused sound in blending Americana and chamber pop with soulful sensibilities. Utilizing strings and horns backed by an intoxicating rhythm section, the band shifts from sonically introspective to hand-clappingly, boot-stompingly danceable. “Dear Ulysses” is both reminiscent of the sounds of open fields and the hootenannies which they contain.
