Your Daily Lick: Trainwreck Riders

The Perch (Alive Records)

Lacking the outright irresistibility that made this San Francisco act’s rollicking breakthrough Lonely Road Revival one of the best releases of 2007, The Perch takes a bit longer to sidle up to. Any attempt to rehash the same hybrid punk/country sound is underpinned by the band’s desire – or need, perhaps – to ride increasingly challenging themes into more mature, dynamic territory.
