[LEFT COAST SOUTHERN ROCK] After a few years off, the convivial fellas in ICLASITH return with more cowpunk-soused rock ’n’ roll. Fifth album Mayberry is a slice of post-millennial Americana with barroom-ready odes to puppies, guitars and Andy Griffith. “Mayberry is dead and gone,” mourns frontman Michael Dean Damron over wailing harmonica on the title track. In Damron’s rearview mirror, only swimmin’ hole days can soothe the ills of hatred and violence, rednecks and guns, pills and liquor. Elsewhere, he finds common ground with Judas, goes gospel for a crucified “King James” and gives up on everything except his dog and maybe PBR—none too surprising for a guy who got the band back together over beers at Yorgo’s. ICLASITH walks a deft line between red-state nostalgia and blue-state politics, kicking ass and kicking out a few saloon anthems along the way.
