Album Review: The Infamous Stringdusters – Things That Fly
Third time’s the charm for The Infamous Stringdusters: their newest release is the band’s strongest, most enjoyable album to date–and that’s no small feat, considering how good their previous two records are.
Andy Hall’s Dobro anchors the band, whether they’re covering traditional bluegrass fare like Jody Stecher’s “17 Cents” (featuring Dierks Bentley), pushing the boundaries a little bit further with a superb, rootsy cover of U2′s “In God’s Country,” or integrating lap steel and organ into their sound. A pair of instrumentals–the delicate, intricate “Magic #9″ and album closer “The Deputy”–showcase the sestet’s top-notch picking.
Things That Fly finds the ‘Dusters at the top of their game. If you’re not lucky enough to catch one of their captivating live shows, just turn this album up to eleven
