30-04-2013 // Album: Alex Culbreth & The Dead Country Stars - Heart In A Mason Jar

Today my country will be drunk. In an hour the Queen will officially resign, followed by the Prince accepting his new job as the King of our little country. You may have read about it. It is a great party and I expect to celebrate it with a few beers, good friends & great music. To get myself in the mood I played this album by Alex Culbreth & The Dead Country Stars this morning over coffee and today's newspaper. Great way to start any new day, even if there's no new King at the end of it.

Alex Culbreth is the male half of The Parlor Soldiers and with his Dead Country Stars he's recorded a modern alt-country album with great up-tempo songs that make you wanna dance and beautiful slow intense songs making you stare into the great white desert with nothing on your mind.

This album has been on heavy rotation for months now, as it was released back in December already and it's a great record from start to finish. Closing track "By & By" is a fine, somewhat slow song with a positive vibe to it. Singing along and dancing is highly recommended. And when it's done, playback is just a mouse-click away.

Great. Fucking. Record.
