For those of you who don't follow my Twitter feed, I retracted Wednesday's post within hours of the update. "Some Nights" just won't get out of my head and if I hear anything in the key of C Major again it will be too soon. Ugh.
But we're back to our regularly-scheduled programming, and I can't think of a better way to start off the new year than with Adam Hill's Banjo Moon.
The hook-driven songs are tasty enough to drive fun.'s drivel straight out of my ear drums, but they're gritty enough to leave a lasting impression.
Hill gives us a tour through the best of roots rock, opening the album with the raucous "True Blue Yodel #1" and "Snake Bitten (Like A Charm)". The album hits a more somber tone with "Deliverance" and "Fairlane" before ratcheting it up again with "Leona Barnett," which I consider to be the showstealer of the album.
Hill recently wrote a rather frustrated post on his site. Do the man a favor and tell him you love the album. And it wouldn't hurt to pay for it, too, since it's available as a "name your own price" record on Bandcamp.
