Recorded in the winter of 2012 at Big Sky Studios in Ann Arbor, MI, just prior to the departure of long-time mandolinist Zach Pollack, "Watching, Waiting" signifies a return-to-roots effort for Black Jake & The Carnies (after a fashion). The clean instrumentation and orchestrated vocals take center-stage on this 5-track EP. Traditional gospel tunes get worked up into a frenzy on the first two tracks, dissolving into the locomotive-powered instrumental, "Last Stop." The record then veers off into more irreverent territory with their Muppets-inspired rendition of an old Red Ingle tune, before finishing off with "A Good Man Knows," a powerful original played at a blistering pace, featuring some of the band's most intricate playing to date.
