Slim Cessna’s Auto Club – Unentitled (Alternative Tentacles)

mp3: Slim Cessna’s Auto Club – Three Bloodhounds, Two Shepherds, One Fila Brasiliero

To say Unentitled is less gloomy than Slim Cessna’s Auto Club‘s last ‘proper’ album Cipher isn’t to suggest it’s big dumb fun. It’s still dense with the country gothic subject matter that made their name – fighting and fornicating and sectarian squabbling and drinking and twisted small town tales. But musically at least it has a lighter touch, even having a happy clappy gospel feel on stand-out track A Smashing Indictment Of Character. But it’s still basically the same kind of gothabilly country polka Harry Smith Violent Femmes Shackshakers kinda deal, just with more choruses. There’s some proper dancefloor shitkickers on here, folks. And it’s an absolute stormer. It also contains the word guffaw.
