Overview

This roots-rock supergroup includes former dB Peter Holsapple, former Bangle Vicki Peterson, former Cowsill Susan Cowsill, and former Dream Syndicate bassist Mark Walton -- all refuges of the '80s underground who've matured as writers and players in relative obscurity. The music they make on the long-awaited follow-up to 1994's self-titled debut strives for the rootsy spontaneity that drove the impromptu club sets that engendered them in the early '90s. With Peterson and Cowsill handling vocals and the boys backing with self-conscious looseness that suggests The Band by way of the Jayhawks, these songs about family, community, and redemption dig into agrarian themes via warm back porch playing. Evocations of wild times, long nights, and dusty roads mix well with less contemplative tunes like the languidly rollicking "Watermark" and hard-driving "Spring Day in Ohio," and a good time is had by all.
