Shovels & Rope - O' Be Joyful (USA 2013)

Another new CD arrival.

This really caught my attention when the opening track appeared on this months Uncut Magazine. Instant connection with the music and even more impressed when I checked out the album on Spotify. Album arrived today and played it to Mrs. Roddus over dinner and even she was quite impressed. The first thing that stands out about this Husband and Wife Duo is her sounding so much like Loretta Lynn. A set of classic Americana with all the right trappings, a bit of banjo, a bit of fiddle, great tunes, some dirty bass and guitar, a tour with Jack White, a bit of attitude and just plain good. Rating 4.5/5.
