The Cairo Gang – Goes Missing (2015)

Singer/songwriter Emmett Kelly and his band the Cairo Gang have spent a good part of the last decade lending their hands to vibrant and woodsy records by venerable folkies like Angel Olsen and Will Oldham. On their excellent 2013 EP Tiny Rebels, The Cairo Gang reinvented themselves as jangle poppers extraordinaire, channeling the Byrds, Love, and half the bands on the Pebbles comps to deliver some truly lovely 12-string guitar-driven lo-fi sounds. On Goes Missing, the album that followed in 2015, the Gang’s leader, Emmett Kelly, goes back to the well and brings back another serving of jingle-jangle goodness.
