REVIEW: Various Artists: Ghost Brothers of Darkland County (2013)

I’ve been promoting this one pretty hard, I know, but because it’s my first (and hopefully not last) review for Paste Magazine, I’m really excited about it.  Here’s a snippet:

“It took more than a decade to get off, but Ghost Brothers of Darkland County is some kind of great record. Its aspirations are high, as are the issues and ideas to which it speaks. In pop music, there’s no surer path to failure than such pretension. But on this album, the music meets and sometimes exceeds those ambitions. Mellencamp has called Ghost Brothers of Darkland County the ‘Sgt. Pepper of Americana.’ A hefty claim, perhaps even arrogant, but at its best this record lives up to it.”
