Deer Tick - Born on Flag Day
My Thoughts: Love (<)

The last time I listened to Deer Tick before I picked this album up, the hood of my car slammed against my windshield as I drove down the highway at about 75mph, so this band is a band I'll always remember, kind of regardless of whether or not they keep putting out good music. Just our luck that I don't have much to worry about with this band, because Born on Flag Day is every good part about the last record with all the fluff scraped off. BoFD is a thick, hearty folk, alt. country record that puts tears in beers, and drunken feet on the floor to either stumble around aimlessly or to purposefully amble and sway one's sad days away. There are some sad freaking songs on this record, but they're uplifting in ways I can't quite put my finger on. Deer Tick is essentially the new CCR. Take that to the bank.
