Southeast Engine- From The Forest to The Sea

Southeast Engine From The Forest to The Sea:

A musically solid and lyrically exceptional alt-country record. Some of the slower songs can drag a little, but all the up-tempo numbers are intense and rocking.

Rating: 13/15 Appalachian trains

Neko Case – The Tigers Have Spoken

Neko Case The Tigers Have Spoken:

As a music critic I am obliged to jump on the alt-country band wagon, so here goes. Case and company blast through some album favorites and well chosen covers. Not her most important work, but possibly her most fun.

Rating: 13/15 Hillbilly Stomps
