Review: Last Good Tooth - The Meeting Was a Success EP

You can't really deny that Providence has become a hotbed for indie folk in recent years.  The current roster of top-tier Americana acts that call RI home includes Deer Tick, The Low Anthem, Brown Bird and Joe Fletcher -- now add Last Good Tooth to the list.  The young band released  the excellent The Meeting Was a Success EP earlier this year.  The songs have a gritty, earthy atmosphere with stream-of-consciousness lyrics provided by Penn Sultan.  Instrumentation is subdued and simple - plucked acoustic guitar and light snare, complimented by Appalachian fiddle and slide guitar.  The music generally manages an upbeat feel - "Take Em" sounds deceivingly carefree for a downer of a song.  The rest varies between loose urban-folk jams ("2001 Massacre") and woozy rock n' soul ("Skydiving Accident").  Really digging this. Listen to "Take Em" below, and get the rest at their bandcamp page:
