I have a very strong feeling that 2014’s list of Roots Albums of the Year will be even more challenging to create than the last several years. No shortage of candidates already, and we’re less than a quarter of the way through. Eric Brace and Karl Straub’s exceptional Hangtown Dancehall is certain to receive considerable um, consideration.
My review of this album has been posted to the Lonesome Road Review. I’ve yet to encounter a recording associated with Brace that hasn’t been top notch, and I can hardly wait for the Peter Cooper & Brace album I understand is slated for later this year.
