For whatever reason, I was expecting this to be a melodic hardcore album from the cover, but was surprised to find this was instead an alt-country album. In other words; more Lucero, less Bridge 9. Really, this is pretty fine. There’s some lap steel over a nice, crunchy foundation of guitar, bass, and drums. And the singers put in just the right bit of soulful drawl without going into irritating twang. This band trades in more of a southern Americana sound, rather than rockabilly or cow punk. I would say this is summer, front porch, evening music. Pullman Strike is indebted to bands like Lucero and Slobberbone but they hold their own very well. I would say this is definitely worth a listen.
