No Effect
“Song Garden”
By Bob Silvestri

      The acoustic duo No Effect (Carl Accordion and Dean Bell) has released a new CD titled “Song Garden”. The ten songs flow with influences ranging from acoustic blues master John Hammond to the sweet style of Leo Kottke to the vocal harmonizing of Buffalo Springfield and The Byrds. “Padre Holiday” features a mix of electric and acoustic guitars complementing and not competing with each other. “Tear Me Down” features a memorable hook and guitar solo. “The First Time” is the most rounded song on the disc as the duo introduces drum programming, giving it a more full band sound. “Long Way Down” features harmonica from Bell and is an outstanding cut as is the track “Wanted Man”. Rounding out the disc are “Shot In The Dark”, “Dancing Angel”, “Better Days”, “This Time” and “Palm Of My Hand”. All ten tracks are quiet introspective songs, rich with melody and intricate guitar work. For more on No Effect go to www.cdbaby.com/noeffectduo
