AmericanSongwriter.Com had the pleasure of catching up with Honeyhoney this January. Honeyhoney talks about their latest album, Billy Jack
"As Santo observes early on, “things are rarely ever what they seem.” While Billy Jack’s redneck title seems to suggest that Honeyhoney have smoothed over all of their weirder tendencies, that’s fairly inaccurate, even if the pair’s eccentricities are more subtle and less self-conscious this time around. Instrumentally, Santo and Jaffe are mostly neck-deep in twang (Santo’s wonderful banjo counter-melodies are particularly great), and their classic country influences shine blindingly through (Their unified harmonies on the bouncy “I Don’t Mind” echo The Everly Brothers). But Billy Jack never sounds dated or placid: The gorgeous six-strings and pedal-steel layers that build and climb in the instrumental climax of “Turn That Finger Around” are downright psychedelic. Meanwhile, their slower, jazzier coffee-shop reveries like “LA River” and “All On You” are fairly lightweight by this album’s previously excellent precedent, even if they are quite lovely as they drip along."
