Harmon Fairchild

Great album!!! A must have for any fan of original music.
Great songs from start to finish. The sounds that were put together to make this album work come from a strange place that may not exist anymore. Every songs keeps the listener's interest as they develop into something unexpected and different. The production and arrangements on this album are what is most striking. There are several songs that include unusual instruments such as sitar, flute, trombone, & marimba. However, this isn't just for effect. They are layed over thick guitars, fender rhodes and hammond organs. The album is in the vain of Abbey Road, not that the songs are like Beatles songs, but the album works in a similar fashion, with the idea of how to make songs sound like so much more than strummed guitars with singing. The playing on the album is also of note. Nobody writes or plays basslines like these. Where did they come from? One helluva an imagination. Rundgren beware. Camparisons could be made to Beck, but why? This album stands on its own and does so with no need for any comparison.

the Supernatural live up to their name
Look out Oxford. A new wave of self-professed “psychedelic” music is hitting the town’s hot spots.

The Supernatural is made up of local musicians who enjoy launching their crowd into orbit with their rich blend of guitar, bass, organ, piano, flute, sitar, trombone, tambourine and many other instruments. They are symbolic of the cultural diversity of Oxford, and its ever present underground music scene.

The Supernatural is no newcomer to Oxford. The musicians have lived in and around Oxford for several years. While the Supernatural has been in existence since 1998 under the head of lead singer and writer Colby Devereux, the current members have only been together since January of this year.

What the new band mates lack in time together, they make up for in experience in the last few months. You might have caught this slightly off-center band at Two Stick or The Library. Their live shows feature their own songs as well as a few covers.

While the music isn’t exactly in tune with popular culture at the moment, Devereux did confess that the band was becoming “more rock lately.” Their music draws heavily on influences from the late Beatles era, but their long intros and raw sound are reminiscent of The Doors. The eccentric lyrics are produced in an eerie tone, while the music only adds to their odd flair, which makes The Supernatural so unique.

Although the music isn’t mainstream pop, there are many interesting qualities that make it worth checking out. This includes writing a lot of their own music, some of which is included on their self-distributed album “In the Corner,” released in 2002. Highlights from the album are songs like “Empty Pockets” and “Splattered Water.”

In the works now is a new album titled, “A Day Ahead of You.” The differences in the two are slight, but it is evident that the group is making progress in its talent and style. The evolution of the Supernatural is something Oxford shouldn’t miss.

As for the Supernatural’s current line up, they have yet to break Oxford’s boundaries. With so much momentum behind the band, it is only a matter of time until they reach out with their influence, and judging by the way the gigs are lining up for them, it probably won’t be much longer.

Oxford Town

Good Stuff!
Guitarist/singer/songwriter Devereux, an obsessive music fan interested in 60s rock, world music, jazz, funk, glam, and indie rock, sees the Supernatural as the product of years of listening to various musical styles. I've always listened to lots of different types of albums," said Devereux. "I like Albert Ayler and John Coltrane as much as I like the Who and the Beach Boys. Now I'm trying to put all these sounds together."

With complicated song structures and layers of instrumentation, In the Corner varies from Beatles-inspired pop psychedelia to aggressive art rock. Overdriven guitars mix play alongside synthesizers, trombone, and lap steel, tempos change several times in the length a song, and the tracks segue into one another with meandering piano melodies or disjointed guitar parts. "Not that I tried to make a concept album, but I had this whole thing in my head before we started," said Devereux. "I had the whole thing worked out and it pretty much developed as I thought it would. A lot of times the other people involved didn't know what I was talking about, but we would eventually get it out."

Devereux recorded In the Corner over a two-year period using members of Oxford bands like Kudzu Kings, Circuit Riders, and the Taylor Grocery Band. Devereux took advantage of the various musicians' talents to add to the dynamics of the record. The albumís opener "Short of Forever" takes on a country rock sound before breaking into a frantic jam section led by Daniel Karlishís electric slide guitar. "The Lighter Side" joins Devereux's psychedelic and indie rock tendencies with a hip-hop-inspired vocal and distorted guitars mixing with the electric piano of Kudzu King Robert Chaffe. "What is Right" features drum machine verses, Beatles-inspired choruses, and an extended trombone solo by Jeff Callaway. "The Other Side of Nothing" also recalls the psychedelic recordings of the Beatles and features the Kudzu Kings' Jeff Colburn on marimba and multi-instrumentalist Jeff Henson on flute and sitar.
