EP Review – Big Kettle Drum “Nantucket Circle”
The last release from Big Kettle Drum made it into my top albums of 2012. So, when this EP popped up in my email inbox, it jumped to the top of my listening pile.
“Nantucket Circle” is a release of raw feelings and emotions that had built up during a very difficult time in the life of, front man, Brant Menswar. His son, Theo, was diagnosed with a rare form on cancer in his blood called Myleodysplastic Syndrome. Theo had to undergo a bone marrow transplant, and the effect of this was felt though out the band.
With the help of their close friend, Marty Dodson (who has chart-topping songs with George Strait, Dierks Bentley, Joe Cocker, & more), they were able to properly place these strong emotions on tape.
