Carry Me Back by Old Crow Medicine Show


Carry Me Back

Old Crow Medicine Show

Play on Napster
Label: Decca (UMO)
It's hard to keep still while listening to Old Crow Medicine Show: For a band with no drums, the propulsive sound of Carry Me Back is immediate and relentless. This is a good thing. Even on songs such as "Levi," which sadly chronicles the life of OCMS fan Leevi Barnard, who was shot and killed in Iraq, there is a lively exuberance to the band's old-timey sound that lightens the load of the lyrics. If they can do that to a sad song, just imagine what amped-up barnburners like "Bootlegger's Boy," "Mississippi Saturday Night" and the title track are like.
