Tons of young shitkickers set their sights on the outlaw-country sound of the '70s­—that raw, funky take on down-home tunes popularized by folks like Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings—but few have come as close to the core spirit as the Abigails. The LA-based outfit's approach is a little more ramshackle and occasionally out of tune, something that their influences wouldn't have allowed (in the studio, at least). But there's something about the way Warren Thomas & Co. sing about the blurry lines between the whiskey- and weed-fueled good times and bad times that make the Abigails feel like the natural heirs to the country-rock throne.
