Old 97’s – Most Messed Up

  • May 4, 2014

The Old 97’s are celebrating twenty years making infectious alt-country music. From their 1994 debut Hitchhike to Rhome to their tenth and newest album, Most Messed Up, the Dallas based four-piece – which still has all the original members – continues to turn out amazingly solid, well crafted, rocking tunes. Frontman Rhett Miller describes set as a meditation on a life in music, a touring band that is still able to make a living on the road. A longtime darling of critics, Old 97’s never achieved the fame they seemed destined for. But no matter, they keep doing what they do, and damned if we aren’t better for it. For a taste of just how great this album is, simply check out opener, “Longer Than You’ve Been Alive.” – Written by SMarx
