Honorable Mention 2013 Pick 18

Chris Shiflett and the Dead Peasants: All Hat and No Cattle (Side One Dummy, 2013)

If you like the uptempo guitar pickin’ rockabilly tinged country, you’ll be into this record.  The band is energetic, the drummer is great and there are generous servings of pedal steel and electric guitar for your earholes.

Shiflett has a solid voice and the tunes are good, but the band playing is what you tune in here for.  If the lyrics were more memorable it would easily be a best of year record.
