The Mother Corn Shuckers

If you like bluegrass, that's awesome. If you don't you're about to love it.

Your emissaries of bluegrass.

The Mother Corn Shuckers hail from San Luis Obispo, but as far as I'm concerned they could have walked out of Appalachia. (Except for those songs about the sea -- not so topical to a coal miner.) The band brings a genuine passion and drive to each song on this album, whether it's the rollicking "Coffee" or "Corn Liquor," or the contemplative "Rossin' Up My Bow." Whoever takes lead vocals on "Bottom of the Sea" is a dead ringer for John Mellencamp, and in my book, that's pretty great.

So throw down with some good time-y music. And have yourself a superlative weekend.
