Album Notes
Waterband was founded by David McDougald, inspired by a higher calling and deep desire to send sincere positive vibrations into the universe through both expressive musical improvisation and thoughtful musical and lyrical composition. Waterband 's form is ever changing, yet ever flowing... Waterband's sonic depth and changing forms allow them to perform as a dynamic acoustic ensemble or as a full-blown electric aural assault! With a massive array of influences, drawing heavily from the psychedelic era of "classic rock", blues, funk, folk, and jazz as well as the ability to cover other artist's classic songs, Waterband is sure to please a diverse audience!!!
Waterband has performed over 500 shows, since forming in 2001, in venues ranging from concert halls,local pubs and coffee shops, to weddings and corporate/political functions as well as radio and television throughout the Midwest and East coast all with the same positive response!

better than good is better than good
Good sound and lyrics, these guys are not stuck to one thing. I would love to read the book that inspired Three Maggots in Space. Some of the guitar work reminds me of early live stuff of Pink Floyd

Great stuff! As expected, a cool mix of music.
If you have ever seen the Waterband live you will want to own this CD. It will remind you of the good times that you had at their show. If you have stumbled across this review then you should just buy the CD. You won't regret it.

Waterband's 'Better Than Good'
Waterband's 'Better Than Good'

Waterband has played over 400 shows all over God’s Green Acre since 2001. All the while the band has kept a positive attitude that has kept them from taking themselves too seriously. This is evident with track 15 on their new CD release “Better Than Good” entitled ‘Tree People Outtakes’. This song is one of my favorite on the disc simply due to the fact that multiple times during the song you can hear members of the band cracking up hysterically while the song is being recorded. Just when it seems that they all have gotten it together one last giggle brings the whole ship crashing down. Studios can make you lose it, and this track is full proof of this.
“Better Than Good” is chocked full of varying tempo songs that jump genres from dub style island vibes like track 5 ‘Natural’ to straight up rockers like the CD’s opening track ‘Everyday’. Not often do you get a CD from a band that exceeds 10 tracks anymore. Well, the Waterband is out to prove that the songs are flowing out of them like the water flows from the sky during monsoon season. Seventeen tracks complete a disc that is all over the board yet keeps you interested all the while.
Waterband is a trio. Not often will you find three musicians that can sound as full and complete as Waterband.

It's All Cool!!!
Proartist: ' Better Than Good' is Waterband's follow up to their debut CD 'Good' released last year. I must say the first thing that hit me was Waterband's edgier / wackier side on some of their new tracks. The CD goes a bit off road from their debut but it's all cool because it shows that Waterband is growing and expanding. Imagine your kicked back jam band on a hi test homegrown frame of mind. Take a listen, you'll know what I'm talking about :) All of this surrounded by their signature 'folkedelicfunkpop' sound. It's obvious these guys are just plain having fun and are more than capable musicians who DO bring good vibes to the listener every time. Keep up the 'good/better than good' work gentlemen.
