An excellent release that straddles multiple genres -- rock, folk, Americana, country -- and nails all of them. The approach is varied, but never comes off as overly scattershot. The melodies are always strong, and the rollicking nature of the tunes and the vocals lends a sort of rambunctiousness to the songs that seems like they must be from a different era, in the best way possible.

Fantastic. Easily my favorite album of 2015 thus far. This is the first time I've heard this band, and I'm in love with their eclectic vibe. From old school rock and roll, to folksy, to prevalent The Band influences, this album truly is enjoyable from track one to track eleven, and the only album from 2015 so far I'll be purchasing on vinyl during my next trip to the record store.

Can't get enough of it!
