Band of Heathens make smooth, escapist Americana–and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. It’s music you can have on at a party, but is equally great for a long road trip.
Especially when it’s cover songs!
Nearly all the selections here are songs you know and love, and can probably sing along to. At least mostly. One of my favorite songs on the album is “Tumbling Dice” (featuring Nick Bluhm) because vocalist Ed Jurdi clearly enunciates every word–and I have no idea what Mick is saying on the original!
Featuring a guest artist on every song, this is a keeper. Great covers record!
