Gob Iron - Death Songs for the Living

You know, I blew past this record when it first came out a little over a year back...I loved Son Volt but for a while there it felt like Jay Farrar just kept making the same record over and over and over and less good each time...



This album is not revelatory...there are some great tracks and really no stinkers...given there are over 20 songs on the disc I guess that's something...Maybe if it were November and maybe if I were in New England...but brothers and sisters I am in Brooklyn and it is too damn warm for January 16th...



My favorite:
