EDITORS’ NOTES

On their fifth album, Oklahoma alt-country heroes Turnpike Troubadours continue to strike the perfect balance of lyrical smarts and musical muscle. Whether the band are stomping through the fiddle-powered "The Housefire" (which finds frontman Evan Felker singing of surviving a blaze), or delivering a deep-twanging locomotive groove on the antihero anthem "Pipe Bomb Dream," the Troubadours understand how to marry expertly penned tunes with tight-but-organic musicianship.
