With it's final album, Chicago quartet Red Red Meat completed a journey started in the early '90s, concluding a study in evolution, moving from it's shambolic blues rock roots into an experimental combo. THERE'S a STAR ABOVE THE MANGER TONIGHT is the sound of a band blooming even as it folds in - finding Tim Rutili (Califone), Brian Deck (Modest Mouse/Iron And Wine engineer), Ben Massarella (Califone/Orso), and Tim Hurley incorporating samplers, loops, and computers, marrying disparate threads of hip-hop, Krautrock, and dub to folk forms, stomps and blues.
