Trains & Jesus
Murry Hammond is the bass player for the Old 97's. But if you hoping for some rockin' pop with a twist of twang, you'll be disappointed here. This album is acoustic and folkie--and very, very smart. The songs are mostly about trains and Jesus, and the production manages to feel both old timey and edgy. To get a feel for what this record's about, I'd recommend "Next Time Take the Train."
