This review is from: Post To Wire (Audio CD)
Fantastic record. Great combination of Uncle Tupelo and The Replacements, but really strong lyrically.
Stories of hope and despair, delivered with great passion, fans of any of the major luminaries within the 'Americana' genres will find plenty to enjoy.
Stand out tracks are 'Barely Losing' and 'Allison Johnson', but overall it's a really strong collection.
The postcard interludes work well too. Not as self consciously out there as similar stuff by Damien Jurado (lyrically, there are big similarities between his work and this album).
Could be album of the year.
