Who would have ever predicted that in the year 2011, the gritty inner-city borough of Brooklyn would become home to countless folk, country, and bluegrass bands? Somehow, a number of very credible local honky-tonkers have risen among the borough’s bearded, plaid-clothed Will'burg denizens in recent years. JP & The Gilberts is among them. The band’s self described “whiskey-drinking music for the new millennium” combines serious instrumental chops, original songwriting, and just the faintest whiff of indie-rock swagger. The songs from the group's debut album Introducing... include a nice mix high-speed country shuffles and accordion-led ballads. “Woman” is an example of the former, kicking off with some finger-busting guitar licks and from there setting off like a Westward-bound steam engine.
