Clone

Clone, the most eccentric of the Phish side projects, unites the band’s bassist Mike Gordon with fingerpicking legend Leo Kottke. The matchup turns out to be utterly natural: Kottke’s laconic quirkiness and the mountain-stream crispness of his guitar mark him as a forefather of the Phish sound. Not surprisingly, the spry instrumentals are the high- lights, while Gordon’s songs tend toward the whimsical (at best) and cutesy (at worst). Brunch music, yes — but for your most oddball friends.
