"Pope Crow" sounds like pure Texan revelry that you'll want to join with. Imagine the Rolling Stones in their early 70's country era, mixed with a little of the White Stripes rollickingly tight but wild rock sensibility. Or maybe like Frank Black's better solo stuff mixed with 16 Horsepower; there's a dark undercurrent to much of the sound, but the band revels in the sad, sometimes angry feelings that their country songs bring out. It sounds on the verge of going off the rails, but always stays on track, and it's a great listen. The mix is totally pro, vocals are mostly dry and up front, but not overbearing, and the bands 8 (!) members keep the songs focused yet varied. I think I can safely say this sounds like it was recorded by the funnest bunch of drunken country rockers ever.
