Album Review
Andy S
Reviewed 2012-07-08 
Lonely-young-American-male-rock. A probably one-off indie-garage-country collective featuring members of the Black Lips, Deer Tick, Dead Confederate and other names from that scene. Fun, often laudably weird, and all over the map with alt-country, southern rock, bluesy bar rock, and indie rock. It's a bunch of cool dudes fucking around, and some fun admissions of that fact as well as a couple legitimately strong numbers emerge. FCC 6, 9, 11. Start with 6(FCC) or 1. —Andy

**1 - upbeat old-timey country, drawling vocals, nice refrain
*2 - rowdy swamp rock, pinching slide guitar line, screaming
3 - dark, fast-paced rock
4 - midtempo bluesy stomp with horn parts, kind of drags on
5 - midtempo CCR rock, sunny organ and guitar parts
**6 - FCC "shitty" - jockeys back and forth between grunge rock and rockabilly; definitely the standout
*7 - weird Cash-esque crooning and accordian
8 - angsty indie rock
*9 - FCC "fucking" - sincerely goofy Meat Puppets type of thing, surprisingly appealing lazy vocal riff
*10 - slower grungy stomp; languid, sneering chorus and nice harmonica
11 - FCC "fucked," "shit" snarling bar rock
12 - uptempo indie rock
*13 - down-and-out rock-n-roll
**14 - absurd down-and-out Christmas piano ballad, intentionally awful sax solo
