500 MILES TO MEMPHIS: Blessed to Be Damned: CD

This record is basically the equivalent of standard artist flash at a tattoo shop, which isn’t an insult. I think this is probably the definition of Americana punk: country- and bluegrass-tinged with nostalgic references to things like Walt Whitman (“O Captain, My Captain!”) and vaguely rockabilly vibes. This feels pretty familiar but I’m sure folks have fun singing along to this at live shows, probably especially if they are outside. Also, they have a fancy website which might not matter, but is notable. –Theresa W. (Spazz)
