That’s Country?

the bloudy tenent cdSlim Cessna’s Auto Club “…is the country band that plays at the end of the world.” Their shows feel more like whiskey-soaked revivals than concerts. Slim and Munly, lead singer and hollow-eyed sidekick, don’t croon; they story-tell and speechify on religion, liquor, violence and love and insist on everyone’s participation. They sing of wrongs and gones in compositions that have been labeled as “uniquely American” because what the heck else do you call music with Western roots and a dark country twang? For a solid step into the yodeling-strange world of apocalyptic alt-country, try Slim Cessna’s fourth album, The Blovdy Tenant Trvth Peace.
