THURSDAY MORNING MIX
February 18, 2010
Scott Foley

Is alt.country experiencing a revival? Well, this Episode of TMM certianly went heavy. Between Have Gun Will Travel, Slimfit and the stellar new Kasey Anderson, I'm certain several folks in No.Colorado got an extra shot with their morning coffee. Not to mention the Deadstring Brothers' strongest effort to date, and the return of Chip Robinson, former singer for the seminal alt.country trailblazers Backsliders.

Excellence was also demonstrated by Tim Barry, whose "Bozeman" might be Barry's first really good tune sans expletives, and Amy Cook, whose Let the Light In album keeps landing in my Box of Awesome.
