Review: Deer Tick (Partisan Records, 2010)

Deer Tick: The Black Dirt Sessions (Partisan Records, 2010)

There’s no way of denying that this is a slight dissapointment. The first two albums showed that Deer Tick is capable of being one of the most interesting and unique country/americana/folk rock outfits out there, but this time it feels like it’s just John McCauley’s wonderful and unique vocals that lifts them above the average country band. The Black Dirt Sessions does contain a bunch of good songs, but it might be that the single Twenty Miles is the only one able to rise to the sky-high level of their earlier material. A great band, but only a good record
