The Felice Brothers had established themselves as the new Americana crown prince with their first three albums, before recording a strange concept album about a gated community in California built by the Disney group on their last longplayer "Celebration, California", released in 2011, on which they suddenly indulged in electronically inspired New Wave sounds. A part of the critics cheered about this radical turnaround, but many fans were disturbed. At least the latter can now be helped. Because on "Favorite Waitress" the band goes back to their folkloristic roots. But the pleasant thing about it is that they didn't immediately put aside everything they tried out on the predecessor. Although the album is earthy and acoustic through and through, the Americana sound, thanks to the almost psychedelic vibes that some songs convey, goes much more in the direction of the Cosmic American Music, which was propagated in the late 60s by artists like The Band or Gram Parsons and in which the spirituality of the folkloric heritage - in the sign of Psychedelia - is the focus.
