Making séance music from dead singers’ notebooks is now a familiar songwriting practice, and this session, spearheaded by Jay Farrar, taps the same source Jeff Tweedy (his old Uncle Tupelo partner) took with Billy Bragg on the two Mermaid Avenue LPs: Woody Guthrie‘s fat verse archives. Four singer-songwriters tag-team in a folk-rock vein, and the high points are when voices unite; see the title track and the Jim James-led “Talking Empty Bed Blues.” Elsewhere, dudes sound like themselves, but with mouths full of Guthurie’s wit and soul.Rolling Stone
