ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Sad Songs and Wildflowers is an accelerating combination of eclectic songs that evolved through collaborative creation between band members and the inner soul of lead singer and songwriter Desmond McCaffrey. Much of the inspiration for the music comes from inner tremors that trickle into the bands creative process; a process comfortable in uncertainty, not always knowing what comes next. From one song to the next, the album moves across different styles, but holds to a certain consistency that comes alive at the push of play. The songs were recorded live in a tranquil mountain setting, with overdubs from Colin McCaffrey, who also masterfully produced the album and allowed the band to capture the essence of feeling what it is like to know music for what it is truly supposed to do.

Sad Songs & Wildflowers A Beautiful trip down the Connecticut River
Uncle Flatty is based out of central Connecticut but their debut CD will take you on a a trip from the Green Mountains of Vermont all the way to New London , each member jumping on board as they add themselves to the journey .This awesome combination of heart felt songwriting & warm sounds are so reminiscent of The Bands ...epic.. Music from the Big Pink. This one has my thumbs up, in this age of file sharing , this is one to buy my friends !!

Amazing debut album!!!
I found it impossible to fit Uncle Flatty's Sad Songs and Wildflowers into a category. Their sound is an ecclectic mix of genres that just seems to feel like home. The undeniable truth is that the music comes from skilled musicians that have found their stride and are going nowhere but up. I found myself completely swept away by Caroline and I couldn't help tap my toes to Whiskey Camel. The music is heartfelt and seems to capture the soul of New England, where the group calls home. If you're looking for an album that takes you places and knows how tug at your heart strings, while not forgetting to have fun, then this is the one to get. Cheers!!!
