Right on Target

This long-awaited album from the Little Country Giants (husband and wife duo Russell Cook and Cameron Federal) is a revelation. The Giants have always been known for their rustic, genuine, Southern Appalachian sound, clever songwriting, and warm harmonies of a real-life couple. Dead Reckoning expands on their signature sound (with horns!) without losing any of the authentic feel of their previous works. This is a band that could have entertained Okies on the dust bowl migration, yet their music will appeal to modern alt- folk, country, and Americana fans. Standout songs include Whiskey, Just a Little Bit, and Alright to Be Wrong, although, honestly, they’re all strong. Dead Reckoning represents a slightly new direction for the Giants. I just hope we don’t have to wait too many years for the follow-up album to see where this direction leads them.
