Biography

From the band that’s been both accurately and inaccurately labeled just about everything this side of Top 40 comes a true-to-form rock-n-roll record. Scratch that, true-to-form is not Deer Tick‘s style. Let’s start over…

Naturally, after so many years of critics praising [and making fun of] them for their “folk” and “country” sounds and ... Read more in Amazon's Deer Tick Store

Sorry that was a dreadful pun, however it is also true. I was recommended to Deer Tick after reading about how well they went down last year at the SXSW Festival, which has given us the likes of The Felice Brothers. I was interested after two listenings and now find it is one of my most listened to albums. It has a mix of styles that seem to stretch from influences such as Chuck Berry to true Americana ala Son Volt etc.

The vocals do appear to be a bit Dropkick Murphy's but are far more developed than that and the songs are all stand out in thier own ways. I give you 'Song About a Man' which takes the Dylanesque woe is me mix and turns it around with lyrics like 'How can a man feel anything, when all he's ever had is sympathy'. The open track 'Easy' is another example of seeing a worn out topic and turninmg it around. Track 10 is great and only available on the album, I think a reason for this is that it contains a secret track. This is an apparently drunken version of 'Eileen Godd Night', with beer cans being opened into the microphones and it is just brilliant. I cant wait to seee them when they tour later in the UK in 2009 - truly unmissable.

The search for the best album of 2009 ends here , Deer Tick have nailed it , to the wall .
This is a superb little beauty which seems very familiar to long term Americana lovers (musically) on the first few plays but has enough invention in the songs to make it somehow all seem new , fresh and exciting . The lead singers voice may be an acquired taste but you soon get used to it and he delivers his vocals with real passion and you totally buy into his world .
i really do feel that this is a new classic in the genre and hope to hear more from this great band in the near future , wonderful stuff .

This album was my favourite of 2009. Considering how much fantastic music came out last year that's saying a great deal of how highly I rate this album. I won't bother suggesting any stand out tracks because there isn't one weak song in the set. This is good old fashioned rock'n'roll and country, sung and performed like they just don't do it anymore. To my mind an instant classic and if you're into 'americana' then you should probably buy this album.
