Your Daily Lick: The Karma Bandit

Howdy Cloud EP (self-released)


Despite sounding like they were recorded into a $10 tape recorder, the Karma Bandit’s songs aren’t half-bad. It’s just one man (a former cabbie, belting out some surprisingly lucid lyrics) and his guitar (acoustic, roughly picked and strummed) on these five folksy tracks. Perfection is for whiners, and sometime amateurs can teach the pros.
