Can I coin a new genre? I propose we create a new genre called “Heavy Americana Metal”. Tin Horn Prayer would fall under this moniker. Those Crosstown Rivals are there and so is the Alabama 3 piece that calls themselves Fistful of Beard.
If you like your Americana pretty and intricate and full of thoughtful lyrics that resemble prose more than songs (think Joe Pug) then Fistful of Beard is not for you. That said, if you’re a fan of PBR, Old Crow and guitars. If you’ve always loved Two Cow Garage concerts but felt their albums needed more “oomph” then Until We Know Better is here to fill your needs.
This album begs you to turn it up. It gets better with volume. It doesn’t wanna talk. It wants to fuck. It doesn’t wanna think. It wants to scream and throw rock fists like it’s Pauly D on the Jersey Shore. It doesn’t want coffee and can’t afford craft beer but it’ll be drunk by the nights end.
There is a good chance you won’t like this album. I understand. This type of music ain’t for everyone but it’s damn sure for me and for me, it’s Essential Listening.
