Amid raves from NPR, NY Times, UNCUT and others, Corb Lund scored a personal best with a #13 debut on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and a #60 debut on the Billboard Indie Chart for his "breakthrough" (Washington Post) album 'Cabin Fever.' The album also debuted at #1 on Billboard's Canadian Top 200 albums chart.
Here's the poignant video for the song "September": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFvwqgjC7As
NPR All Things Considered's Meredith Ochs raved about the "impressive" album of "great songs," saying, "Lund finds glory in tough work, spotting characters most people would overlook, and celebrating them with colorful sketches… Corb Lund's ironic humor and keen sense of American culture is similar to Hayes Carll": http://n.pr/N6gbmr
Meanwhile, NY Times' Nate Chinen called it "an album of pithy mischief and roguish charm": http://nyti.ms/QYpWu3
UNCUT gave the album nine out of ten stars, raving, "This is another terrific chapter in what's become a rich catalouge of orthodox country."
In the Washington Post, Allison Stewart wrote, "Lund is a revelation, laconic and scary smart, with a devil’s eye for details."
