Mindy Smith w/ Rosi Golan; Old Southern Moonshine Revival CL Recommends

When: Sat., July 14 2012
Price: $15; $8
OLD SOUTHERN MOONSHINE REVIVAL Old Southern Moonshine Revival is pop-country and nothing but, yet there’s not all that much Nashville to the band’s sound. It’s like the difference between Rascal Flatts’ inhumanly slick cover of “Life is a Highway” and the dusty jangle of Tom Cochrane’s original. While each version was a massive hit in its time, there’s more dignity — and longevity — in the second approach. And like Cochrane — as well as other early-’90s rock-country hybrids — Old Southern Moonshine Revival’s instrumentation is spacious and welcoming, an appropriate complement for alternatingly bittersweet and celebratory explorations of southern life. Though lyrical clichés may be endemic to pop-country — okay, so they are — they don’t seem so bad in the hands of a capable band.
— Corbie Hill
