*** (out of four)

The Skellingtons, led by singer and songwriter Lee Terry, are one of Winston-Salem’s longest-running bands, a group of skilled singers, writers and players who quietly release album after album, even as musicians come and go, to hone a vision that gets tighter and broader with each release.

American Static is the band’s first album in four years, and, is, not surprisingly, yet another giant leap forward, taking its cues in part from trainsleavingangels, Terry’s superb solo album of last year. The music is rural in the most sophisticated sense - soulful, softly emotional front-porch music with an unwavering desire to make listeners feel good and think a little bit.

Kudos to Susan Terry - singer, violist and mandolinist - who, without fanfare, produced and mixed the album in a manner that perfectly captures the down-home cool of the band’s music. The casual confidence of the performances - evolved string-band rock ’n’ roll, with an Anglicized heart and a blue soul - is deceptively alluring. Inventive. Inviting. Hypnotic.
