Gypsum Strings by Oakley Hall
Released: Jun 2006
Label: Brah Records
Oakley Hall avoids the rhinestone irony that so often marks the intersection of indie rock and classic c 'n' w by picking traditional elements with great care, often eschewing heavy-handed hee-haw for driving psychedelics. Low-hanging harmonies from Pat Sullivan and Rachel Cox make even the most aggressive moments hint at the Carter Family, whether hollering about how "water from my well tastes like oil from a can" ("Confidence Man") or singing the lovely ballad "Living in Sin in the USA." There's no shortage of weird, old Americana, and somehow weird, new Americana too.
