The New York Times, NPR, Billboard Magazine, and others have raved about 'Cabin Fever' (New West Records), the new album from Corb Lund. It all amounts to career-best reviews for Lund, a former metal musician and fourth generation Albertan rancher:

"Impressive… great songs… 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." – NPR

"An album of pithy mischief and roguish charm." – NY Times

"This is another terrific chapter in what's become a rich catalouge of orthodox country" - Uncut 9/10

"A breakthrough [and] a doozy… Lund is a revelation, laconic and scary smart, with a devil’s eye for details." – Washington Post

"As if strolling out of the American West itself, caked with layers dusty guitar riffs and rugged vocals, comes Corb Lund’s latest work… The album’s 12 tracks drip with cowboy speak." – Paste Magazine

"Corb Lund has one up on the alt-country competition in that he’s been an actual cowboy, and his songs sometimes seem like the soundtrack to a Western directed by Quentin Tarantino." – MTV Hive

"Corb Lund's 'Cabin Fever' is the best country record this year." – The Oregonian

"I'm digging it hard." – No Depression

"A release I’m certain we’ll be talking more about as 2012 progresses." – My Old Kentucky Blog

"It dreams big." – Consequence of Sound

"Cabin Fever is tough without sounding callous, heartfelt without being melodramatic, and true and straightforward enough that plenty of rock and country acts could learn a lot from it." – All Music Guide

Additionally, Corb Lund and The Hurtin' Albertans will be performing at The Mercy Lounge on September 12, 2012 at 10pm during the Americana Music Awards and Conference.
