Home by The Wilkinsons
Released: Jun 2007
Label: Agr Television Records
Home opens with a stellar version of Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car," an obvious choice for a radio single that blends muted drum-machine beats with soaring vocal harmonies, watery pedal steel, warm banjo and a subtly grinding Hammond organ. With cover songs in mind, we were kind of hoping "Six Pack" might be the Wilkinsons' countrified take on the Black Flag classic, but instead it's a playfully waltzing, blue-collar, can-crushing honky-tonk ditty. "Papa Come Quick" is another hit-worthy ditty boasting the familial harmonies that make this band so special.
