This reminds me of the Original Harmony Ridge Creekdippers, which is where I hope it might lead some yet to experience the free-spirited authenticity of those refugees from the big smoke.
Big Thief sound more contemporary than the loose country-folk of the Creekdippers, but IMO it's Big Thief's countrified tunes that give this album it's cohesion. I hope they do travel further along this road and record America's next great album. They have the talent. tideracer
