Editors’ Notes

Former Avail frontman Tim Barry continues his foray into sociopolitical folk while retaining the surly voice and bold delivery of his hardcore days. With his fifth studio album, the prolific Barry taps deeper into the working man’s blues with rootsy songs that resonate with the timelessness of hard luck. Barry opens 40 Miler with an intro that plays like a chain gang recording piping through an old wooden radio before “Wezeltown” gets things going with acoustic guitar, banjo, handclaps, footstomps, and world-weary lyrics that keep the song grounded in 21st-century relevance. “Driver Pull” follows, with Barry singing the lyrics of a hobo’s lament as a violin drones and minimal parlor-piano parts give the tune a lilting melancholy. Speaking of hoboes, “Hobo Lullaby” features a howling harmonica approximating a lonesome train whistle as Barry croons along. He also offers a tune to the Occupy movement with “Banker’s Dilemma,” where he sings “I ain’t workin’ no more/So credit companies, take warning.”

40 Miler

This man can do no wrong in my opinion. BUY THIS! If you've seen him live or own any of his other albums you won't be disappointed. If you have never listened to any of his albums... BUY THIS! And the purchase of other albums will simply follow suit. You will want to own his entire body of music. This is a must have for any music collector. That is all...

Love Tim Barry

Good music to chill out and drink beers to see you in Charleston on the 20th!

A great addition.

This is another amazing album by an amazing artist. Fine Foods is one of the best songs I've ever heard. It's like 40 Milers version of Downtown VCU.
