Album Review: The Coal Men - Escalator

Like Americana music like me? Then you need to get a hold of the The Coal Men - Escalator. Along with longtime drummer Dave Ray, Nashville based Dave Coleman knows how to write songs with meaning, not the gobblygook that passes for pop-county today. This CD has some blues tendencies, outlaw country, and pure rock - what's not to like. Just have a listen to Broken Heartland or Tennessee. The CD was recorded live at the studio so it also as that raw - live music feeling. Need more validation? The CD is released from Todd Snider's Aimless Records and The Coal Men will be opening for Snider during an October tour.
