The Cairo Gang create six a.m. soothe-core for the puzzled punch-drunks of the world, picking up where Elliot Smith left off with true lemon drop tunes for the downtrodden. This is rock ‘n’ roll for when you want to snuggle up with the dictionary, discovering new terms to explain why you’ve abruptly shaved off your mohawk, bought some old suits, and grew an intense obsession with J.D. Salinger. The Cairo Gang’s self-titled debut full-length is a track-by-track blueprint illustrating each and every facet of the emotional spectrum. Over the course of recent years, The Cairo Gang has been a lingering passion for Emmett Kelly, a stimulated singer/songwriter with an impressive list of musicians in his Rolodex. Performing both solo and with a backing band, Kelly always brings a fresh thrill to the world of quiet rock music. Originating in Los Angeles, he bounced around the globe before eventually landing in Chicago. After mastering countless instruments, Kelly decided to put his skills to work and record some tunes that had been afloat in his headspace.And thank the heavens he did, because this album perfectly tweaks the butterflies in all of our stomachs. “[The Cairo Gang’s] elegant and lyrical playing reflects influences as diverse as ‘60s Brit folkie Steve Ashley and post-punk virtuoso Nels Cline.” – Chicago Reader
