The music is a Roots-Rock meditation on time and place, with a hopeful spirit rooted in Maine’s hard soil and high horizons. You can almost see the slate gray of open lakes in “Isn’t There a Place,” feel the trickling growth of “How Long,” and hear the bar stools shift to the exuberant, floor-pounding celebration of “7 Days Long.” 'Derelict' is human, wooden-floor music.
It's as if Earl Mac inherited an equal influence from the rock heroes of his childhood, and the archaic crackle of the many old-time Maine storytellers that he’s known and loved. Like most Mainers, he does what he can, with what he’s got - humility, resourcefulness, honesty, pride - and the work ethic to make something beautiful. It’s the Maine way, this rugged, eclectic individualism - and it’s all that Earl Mac knows.”
