The 'Mericans - So Late It Hurts CD


"Lift me up, I want outta here/Lift me up, I wanna taste the sky," Chris Daltry sings on "Sky Full," the closing cut from So Late It Hurts, the new album by the 'Mericans. That line seems to capture Daltry's vision on the third release by the "experimental-Americana-roots" quartet (featuring guitarist Mike Moore, drummer Pete Lima, and new bassist Paul Williamson) — a little gloom chased down with a shot of hope and redemption, presented with a well-worn smile. Smoldering tremolo-at-dusk cuts like "Language of America" ("In times of trouble, with wings that don't fly"), "Our Strength In Numbers," and "No One Up There Is Listening" are standouts, but I'll take "Car" as an all-time 'Mericans favorite (yes, ranking up there with "Pawtucket," from their 2006 debut 'Merican Recordings). Fans of Galaxie 500, Wilco, and Buffalo Tom take notice.
