From the liner notes by Jason P. Woodbury: "There’s a scene in The True History of The Traveling Wilburys short documentary in which the viewer is treated to footage of drummer Jim Keltner furiously smacking his sticks on cabinet doors, refrigerator shelves, and other surfaces in Dave Stewart’s kitchen, trailed by a microphone capturing his every move. I keep thinking about that funny scene while listening to Keltner’s playing on Everywhen We Go, the second album from the trio comprising the drummer, guitarist Mike Baggetta, and bassist Mike Watt.
Everywhen is a much sparser and direct example of Keltner’s rhythmic sensibility, don’t get me wrong, but the same manic spirit is at work across the album’s nine songs. Everywhen is a playful and forceful outing, a sprightly tangle of sand dune guitars, Los Angeles noir, spazzouts and honey-toned pastorales. Like Keltner in the kitchen, these lifers—whose back catalog spans the avant-garde, various Beatles solo albums, The Stooges, and strains of outsider punk and rock expression—are at play on the recording."
