Alt-country never caught on the way late-'90s record execs hoped it would, but that doesn't mean it went away. Texas five-piece Micky and the Motorcars carry on in the tradition of Whiskeytown and Uncle Tupelo, who carried on in the tradition of Gram Parsons, who carried on in the... you get the picture. Micky and the Motorcars stick to traditional subject matter—women, boozing, the open road—with a finish that's more glossy than dusty. Portland's Flash Flood and the Dikes dig a little deeper, blending country with more far-out sounds. The only thing glossy about these lads and lassies are their eyes. That is to say: Come out early for the Dikes. MARK LORE
