FILTER KINGS: Drink You Away: 7”

Sleeve looks like this is going to be some hot rod garage deluxe, like a million mid-’90s singles. Luckily, what comes out of the speakers is some good, solid alt country-sounding stuff that I can dig. Uncle Tupelo comparisons are unavoidable but the Filter Kings are heads and shoulders above most of the bands that work that angle. Not nearly to the level of say Drag The River, but I would be interested in hearing more from this Nebraska band. Strong songwriting and excellent vocals make this one a keeper, to be sure. Would like to hear a full length.
