After seven years touring the forgotten towns of the northwest, the Dry County Crooks found a proper label and enlisted the production talents of living legend Jeremy (Dharma Bums) Wilson for third album When Hearts Break
. Not exactly a new direction, but their indiefied country-rock's certainly been enlivened - lightly-twanged riffage suggesting garage rockabilly or restrained punk balladry; something like a home-grown Mescaleros. Prospective single "Second Chance On Love" from the soon-to-be-released disk sounds equally worthy of Nuggets enshrinement or drive time ubiquity.
The Dry County Crooks appear on the Rick Emerson show this Monday, May 12th at 11 am on 970 AM
DCCs play their CD release at Dante's on Saturday, May 17, 2008. $8. 9:30 pm.
