Carry Me Back [Exclusive Cherry Wood]
Listening to Old Crow Medicine Show is a time-traveling experience.
Unlike similar modern day (pseudo) bluegrass bands, like Mumford and Sons and the Avett Brothers, OCMS has an old-time quality in their songs and delivery that easily fools the listener into thinking they’re spinning a group from the ’40s or ’50s. If it weren’t for the production quality of their albums, you could go on believing it.
The album stampedes through the gate in typical speedy bluegrass fashion with “Carry Me Back to Virginia” and “We Don’t Grow Tobacco”. With beautiful ease, the boys slow it down on tracks like the heartbreaking “Levi” and the honey-sweet harmony of “Ain’t it Enough”.
