I get a lot of folk punk from Razorcake, and The Weight’s album cover made me think I was in for more of the same. The Weight, however, are another beast altogether. They’re essentially just a country band, pedal steel and all. There’s a blend of Southern rock, Americana, and the gentlest of indie rock influences at work here, sort of like if members of The Old 97s, Fleet Foxes, and the E Street Band all formed a Skynyrd cover band.
