Country Fair

 New Pornographers guitarist Todd Fancey’s digital only release is a tribute to the 60s/70s country music he loved growing up. He and Paul Rigby, Neko Case’s longtime guitarist, along with other guests, have made a great update here just by being faithful to the spirit of the originals. I like the bit of loving irony sprinkled in as well, as everyone on here knows this is off the beaten path. All the more reason to pay tribute to it.

It’s also fun to listen to, little psychedelic lyrically adding to it. If you’re a fan of Fancey’s previous releases, as I am, you won’t go wrong with an album this fun and good.
