Junkyard Speed Ball
Released: Mar 2011
Label: Alive Records
Indiana's Delta duo get more Southern-rock-bittersweet on their fourth album, notably in "Cracker Barrel," the dusky-organed "Giving Tree" and "Pig Farm," which sets a hunt for an old cornfield house off I-94 in Michigan to sodden Crazy Horse guitars. The Memphis metal-funk "24 Hr" praises all-night greasy spoons; "Hip-Hop"'s boogie-rap has a Big Mac attack in its Cadillac. But from back-porch harmonica shuffles to spittle-voiced geezer stomps, there's as much drinking as eating: "Weed Vodka," for example, and a song detailing preferred beverages at sundry Southwestern tour stops.
