Starvation Under Orange Trees is the new album by Ray’s Vast Basement. An album which lifts your spirits with it’s acoustic folk melodies and gentle poetic lyrics. The songs that make up Starvation Under Orange Trees are from a score Jon (lead singer) wrote for a John Steinbeck play; the band performed it live in the theater for 16 weeks. I would have loved to see this because the album is really a delight song after song.

Ray’s Vast Basement hails from San Francisco and although most of their shows are currently in the SF area they set sail in August for a few shows on the East Coast. I highly recommend checking them out.

    they have a very cool vibe.
    very 60s to me.

    I can hear a little 60’s vibe coming through those acoustic melodies indeed.

    Beautiful. Strange. Spiritual even?

    Good acoustic folk can certainly have a spiritual affect I am with you there Nate.
