Singer-songwriter Josh Ritter
doesnt even bother to conceal his adulation of freak-period Beatles. On his new album, The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter, the Idaho-based troubadour piles on a carnival of sounds that employ multitracking, various tape tricks, and lots of exotic instruments. And Ritter doesnt play favorites: John, Paul, and George (sorry, Ringo) can all be heard in the grooves -- from the poppy Right Moves to the twisting wordplay of To the Dogs or Whoever.
