These United States, 'Everything Touches Everything' (United Interests)

8
Everything Touches Everything
Critical Mass
Label: United Interests

by Jon Young

Don't be fooled by the easygoing vibe: These United States' intoxicating third album brilliantly captures the overwhelming jolt of simply being alive. If the quintet brews a familiar American stew -- mixing bent folk, groggy country, and thrift-store rock -- few others have the ability to deliver it so gracefully. Like wise elder Robert Plant, crooner Jesse Elliott swings between a sleazy leer and a dreamy purr as he savors the sun (the title track), mourns a friend ("Good Night Wish"), and hits the town ("Night & the Revolution"), deftly blurring the line between carnal and cosmic.
