Got some BBQ ribs? Beer? Baked beans and cornbread?

Then you are ready ... for some sweet luscious sounds of Nashville blues.

With vocals similar to Burl Ives and Randy Newman, let uncle John Hiatt and The Jerry Douglas Band serve-up your backyard soundtrack this summer.

The production quality of this album is superbly Nashville, but not all tracks are gemstones. Still, hard to believe there's no drums.

Favorite track: Long Black Electric Cadillac

One of the better [calming] shoegaze albums I've listened to over the past couple of years.

A nice production featuring interesting guitar riffs, clear vocals, and some memorable songs.

Fans of Slowdive (and MBV) should take a listen.

Favorite tracks: Say Something, ...Moved Away

Grab some whisky. Some cigs. A sidearm. Kick back. Have some laughs. Introduce yourself to "voodoobilly".

Unbeknownst to Quentin Tarantino, this band is his spirit animal. Dubbed "The scariest band in the world", but probably one of the coolest.

Favorite track: Last Time I Saw Cole

In a fighting spirit? Looking for some revenge? Hate clowns? Hobos?

Love wresting? Trains? Look no further... Your musical prayers have been answered! Hallelujah!

With tracks like "One Day I Will Kill You" and "Bitch Tried To Kill Me", how can anything go wrong?

Favorite track: Drunk Guy On The Train

Miss CB radios? Clint Eastwood orangutan films? How about Smokey and The Bandit (based on a Coors beer run)? Anything trucker related? Well, dagnabbit... it's your lucky day!

Kick your boots off, and enjoy tonight's convoy into hayhem, as "The Mocker" goes against "Voodoo Trucker" in this thrill-ride of an album.

Favorite track: Truck Driving SOB

Hey I just wanted to let you know that my list aggregating AOTY's favorite albums of the year 1970 is finally live, and that you are included in it!

This was a very big project that would not have been able to be completed without your ratings and I hope to continue this series with future installments!

If you would be so kind as to check the list out and even possibly give me any feedback at all it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
