Hammer Down by The SteelDrivers
Released: Feb 2013
Label: New Rounder
Although two founding members have departed since their last release, The SteelDrivers haven't skipped a beat. Hammer Down is melancholic in its subject matter but upbeat in its delivery, making for an electrifying dichotomy. "Cry No Mississippi" is a glorious "f-you" to getting dumped ("A tear or two might fall into my whiskey/ But I won't cry no Mississippi"), co-written by the Civil Wars' John Paul White, who also had a hand in "I'll Be There." Other highlights include soulful murder ballad "Shallow Grave," upbeat two-stepper "Wearin' a Hole" and the biting "How Long Have I Been Your Fool."
