(No Scene)
Cook and friends (including John Campbelljohn on C6th pedal steel and Jon Landry, from Folds of Policy, on electric guitars) show themselves to be sure hands on honky-tonk numbers (“How Drunk I Get”), brooders (“...Between the Buried and Me”) and old-timey waltzes (the closer “Little Doves”). “Gaspereau Valley” shows best how this son of South Shore dairy farmers sings like a cross between Dwight Yoakam and the woefully forgotten Mike McDonald greats, Jr. Gone Wild. With cover art by Yo Rodeo! this is a complete package.
