AMERICANA MUSIC AWARDS AND CONFERENCE SHOWCASE CONFIRMED SEPT. 12 IN NASHVILLE AT MERCY LOUNGE
The New York Times' Nate Chinen included Corb Lund's 'Cabin Fever' (out
yesterday on New West Records) in his Sunday Arts & Leisure
playlist. Here's the complete review:
"You can almost see the twinkle in Corb Lund's eye throughout 'Cabin
Fever,' an album of pithy mischief and roguish charm, due out on
Tuesday. Mr. Lund, who hails from cowboy stock in Alberta, mines his
milieu with a catch in his voice and a keen eye for detail. It's not
just the yodeling that sets the song 'Priceless Antique Pistol Shoots
Startled Owner' apart. His rangy band, the Hurtin' Albertans, sounds
noticeably loose in the studio, especially in 'Bible on the Dash,' a wry
bit of advice offered side by side with the Texas troubadour Hayes
Carll. And to his credit Mr. Lund makes it hard to tell which is the
truer version of him: the survivalist prophet of 'Gettin' Down on the
Mountain,' who resembles a smart-alecky Cormac McCarthy, or the pleading
paramour of 'September,' who clumsily tries to keep his love from
heading back to the big city: 'I can picture how you're living, in a
tiny fourth-floor flat/Well there's times that a thousand acres and the
Rocky Mountains can't compete with that.'"
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.
