Deer Tick’s New Record, “Black Dirt Sessions” Available for $3.99

Today only at Amazon.  The Providence, RI alt country band are one of the best going and this would be a solid purchase for the summer.  The reviews have been pretty favorable, overall.

From Paste:

John McCauley III’s fiberglass croak couldn’t sound further from Neil Young’s whimper, but The Black Dirt Sessions is this band’s After the Goldrush, stuffed with devastating songs laid bare by weathered, redemption-seeking renegades.

In the brooding “Twenty Miles,” McCauley howls, “If you’ve lost your way, I’m seeing you through” with my-time-here-is-limited angst; crawling piano dirge “Goodbye, Dear Friend” is hauntingly intimate (“You carry on … in the unmade bed you slept in, where I laid you down to rest one last time”). Only swamp-rocker “Mange” quickens the pace.

Dirt is pensive, painful stuff, tougher than leather and rawer than a bleeding steak—but that’s life, right?
