DEMON IN BAMBI LEE BY THE COUNTRY DARK

A few weeks ago, we brought you a track from Joe Bone and The Dark Vibes which brought to mind the murder ballads of the past. Now, from Finland, come The Country Dark with a genuine, bona fide, electrified, six-car monorail murder ballad.
Without taking themselves too seriously, the album Hypnic Jerk serves up rockabilly garage with country influences. If they weren't listening to Nick Cave while writing it, I'll be very surprised, but influences also come from 16 Horsepower, Elliott Brood and the novels of Cormac McCarthy.

Hypnic Jerk is out now and you can get it from Record Shop X. You can find The Country Dark on Facebook.
