Album Review: Corb Lund - Counterfeit Blues

"Lund has taken a honky-tonk brush to his songs with a strong rock’n’roll and rockabilly undercurrent"

More Corb Lund More Corb Lund

The story behind Lund’s eighth album involves a trip with his band The Hurtin’ Albertans down from Canada to Memphis’ legendary Sun Studio for a completely live recording session over two nights. That approach has certainly reaped rewards, with the album sounding raw and alive. There’s a real sense of the players bouncing off one another and riding the vibe and tempo changes in real time.

Lund has taken a honky-tonk brush to his songs with a strong rock’n’roll and rockabilly undercurrent and it suits the sound of the tunes perfectly, regardless of the setting.
