Fred Eaglesmith: 6 Volts
Buy! - (AML)
The latest album from veteran Ontario troubadour is one of his finest collections of songs in quite awhile. Recorded in mono with the band gathering around a single microphone, the sound is raw and intimate, with jagged bursts of shuddering electric guitar providing a raucous edge to an otherwise rootsy blend of pedal steel, banjo, mandolin, drums and Eaglesmith’s weathered vocals. That raw, homemade sound helps power a consistently strong set of deeply poignant hard-luck tales, murder ballads, road songs and more. 1/25/2012 - Don Yates
