Quick Review: Hayshaker – Tin Roof Snare

Hayshaker: Tin Roof Snare (Self-released, 2010)

One good reason to feel like a gigantic turd is the fact that I haven’t written anything about Hayshaker even though I downloaded the album months ago. Hayshaker comes from the town where Gram Parsons grew up (Waycross, Georgia) and Tin Roof Snare is their sophomore album. It’s a really fine album even though I think it’s a bit of a slow starter and the quality really kicks in midway through the park. Sure it’s all pretty good beforehand as well and Merle Haggard is a great song title, but the last four songs are the the ones that I enjoy the most. Especially Swamp Country is such a great country song with lyrics that make you smile, some awesome male-female harmonies and a wonderful melody. Tin Roof Snare actually has a fair share of beautiful pop melodies on it and therefore you might like it even if you are not that much into country music.

    Very good album, Too bad it’s made up by lousy mp3 !!
    When i buy a cd I expect a real lossless version. This mp3 thing has gone way too far, It is killing music !
    I really hope a REAL version of this will be availible soon
