Fans of their unique, urban twist on stark, avant garde country music are definitely the beneficiaries in this instance. Song writing and performance are leaps ahead of the charming wackiness of “Odessa” has receded into the distance, a darker, blacker, and much drier humor has risen in it’s place. For influences, see: Kafka, Cohen, Carter Family, Flying Burritos, Hank Sr., Louvin Bros, Neil Young and the Everly Brothers. This is a GREAT record if we do say so ourselves.
