Remedy (CD)

Nu-bluegrass superstars return with album 5 of their updated and energetic take on old timey music. The seven piece ensemble was recently inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, and their membership there should be an indicator of how far this band has come from its days busking on streetcorners. Old Crow is, these days, a full fledged institution of Americana, a crossover smash with fans of both rock and country. The new album was produced by Ted Hutt, whose work producing Flogging Molly and as a sort of in-house producer for SideOneDummy has steeped him in capturing both high energy performances and genuine folk-rootsy sounds.  The lyrics are as clever as ever and feature wry takes on country classics like conjugal visits and romantic alcoholism among classic ballads and love songs.  As usual, the bluegrass musicianship is top notch and the band's harmonies sound effortless and tight as ever, gliding high and lonesome over the intricate interplay of the band's nuanced picking and strumming.
