CL Critic Hal Horowitz Recommends: Frontman singer/songwriter BJ Barham has been leading this alt-Americana outfit since 2006, picking up fans with each album. They mix some country twang with rock and roll, also throwing a dollop of Jackson Browne-styled introspection into that mix. So much so that the first single from their new Chicamacomico even nicks “running on empty” for its lyrics. Think a less political Drive-By Truckers. Barham’s new songs explore loss but he says “It’s a sad record that makes you feel good.” -HH
