Burlap To Cashmere, formed by Greek folksingers (John Philippidis and Steven DeLopoulos) are a New York band that plays folk-rock infected with ethnic accents and influenced by 1970s singer songwriters.

The intents of Anybody Out There? (A&M, 1998) are ambitious: arrangements with multiple instruments, flamenco and afrocuban rhythms, Greek folk and pop-soul melodies. But the result is quiet trivial, whether it's the atmospheric dance-pop of Eileen's Song or the melodramatic saltarello of Divorce and Scenes. The two songwriters have not found a voice, but they get close with songs like Digee Dime, Ancient Man and Anybody Out There that recall Paul Simon (melodies) and Cat Stevens (rhythms). For an album that aims at being very original, it sounds strikingly dejavu.
