An energetic, rough-around-the-edges collection of mid-fi fuzz-rock that feels like it’s erupting as it rumbles past you.
Hamilton Leithauser’s scene-stealing vocals may shift between Tweedy’s alt-county mannerisms and Dylan’s croon, but the disc’s finest moments come when the quintet stomps in unison, all reverb-drenched guitars and jagged refrains.
This record was born to be heard on vinyl.
Favorite Track: “Lost In Boston”
