“Portland, Oregon’s Scott Arbogast, aka Rainstick Cowbell, is a real curiosity if not something of a one-off. On “Self, Assemble” (his second full-length release) Arbogast is armed with just an acoustic guitar and an adolescent/androgynous voice that almost merits “freak” status when you consider how much it belies his hairy countenance. Quirky, percussive guitar, unusual phrasings and some intense and rather personal lyrics make for a special kind of campfire weirdness that definitely hits the spot hereabouts. Standout tracks include the urgent “Step, Elephant” and the beautiful and inventive “Lessons of Misur and Muzur”, but delve into any of these eleven sometimes delicate, frequently passionate and more often than not off-kilter acoustics cuts and you’re bound to come across a curveball that will challenge, stimulate and hopefully delight. Rainstick Cowbell certainly is different, and in his case different is a good thing indeed.”
