Dirt City Radio Old Country Blues · P.O.S. Never Better · The Handsome Family Honey Moon

Albuquerque's Dirt City Radio puts forth the kind of country you can sway to while swilling whiskey on your back porch. One acoustic guitar plucks out a melody while the other repeats the chord progression so many times it's hypnotic. Dirt City doesn't go wild, but the energy is high enough to keep you awake in your rocking chair. Slightly ominous and just a wee bit gritty, Old Country Blues remains grounded in its rural roots.
