Your Daily Lick: Adam Hancock and Family

Adam Hancock and Family (self-released)

Both pragmatic and sad-sacked, a line like I like to drink by myself, the alcohol lasts longer is quintessential country, even if Hancock’s voice lacks twang. That’s okay – Dave Zirbel’s pedal steel fills in the gaps. Across two discs and seventeen songs, Hancock and friends’ mastery of melancholy country-rock gets a little tired, unless of course you’re down in the dumps, too.

At the Starry Plough (3101 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) on July 10. 9 p.m., $8
