In the winter of 2013, Cadillac Jones holed up in a vintage cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina to find new approaches and influences for their fifth record. Out of those early sessions came the blueprint for Cabin Fever. Cadillac Jones then returned to Atlanta to experiment with the instrumentation and textures they would use in the studio. Over the course of 9 songs, the funk-jazz group layers horns, keyboards, synthesizers, and pedal steel guitar over driving beats and delicate ambiance. The resulting album documents the mindstate of the band as they looked back over their past 14 years and forward to what they would sound like next. The band still proudly wears their influences of Herbie, James, and Quincy. But with the comfort of over a decade of history under their belts, Cadillac Jones confidently blends in touches of psychedelia, rock, and Afrobeat that keep the surprises coming from the left and right channels.
