THE WHIPSAWS
***
60 WATT AVENUE (Blue Rose)
On the fine follow-up to their 2006 debut, this Alaskan bunch sound
like Drive-By Truckers channelling Wilco (Seven Long Years), Neil
Young (rousing cover of Mr.Soul) and both on anti-war anthem The War.
Unafraid to rock out, but their best songs are mid-to-downtempo: banjo
and steel ballad Lonesome Joe and great Gram-via-Tweedy country rocker
Stick Around.

Ten Day Bender Album Review (June 2006)
"This is modern-day Americana/roadhouse jukebox material at its finest, and The Whipsaws deliver it like a precious newborn baby into the uncertain arms of a needful America. There isn’t a song on this album that isn’t pure, true, straight-up and from the gut..."
