JAMES MCCANN'S DIRTY SKIRT BAND
LOST PROPERTY (BEAST RECORDS)
McCann and band deliver direct bluesy, lyrical rock with country undertones. "I Should Know" is one of those songs about heading home with guitars pulling as hard as heart-strings.
"Two Ways To Die" might seem a fatalistic tease but says more in less than two minutes than most bands do over the course of a full album.
Where Do You Go?" rumbles across the turntable like a thunderhead with jangling guitar lines and bluesy licks melding into something altogether more dark.
The band works itself up three times before they're done with this one. File under D for Dynamics.
