Unlike 2009’s Monsters of Folk, this less ambitious effort sounds like a more rootsy Deer Tick album, rather than a combination of the three artists perspective bands. That being said, the album is very enjoyable because of McCauley’s gravely voice, Goldsmith’s soft croon, and the group’s playful lyrics. Read the rest of this entry »
