The first benchmark Atlanta record was by Fiddlin’ John Carson. His famed 1923 single “The Little Log Cabin In the Lane” was released decades before rock ’n’ roll became a major Southern export. The Whiskey Gentry draws liberally from this local and regional timeline with Dead Ringer. Husband and wife duo Lauren Staley and Jason Morrow and their band mates are a rocking string band that thrives beyond Carson and his post-World War I peers’ wildest dreams on French language cow-punk stomper “Paris,” and the equally rollicking title track. Dead Ringer is 2017’s finest addition to Atlanta’s ongoing Americana boom. (Label: Pitch-A-Tent Records)
