Truckstop Darlin', The Tumblers, McDougall 

When: Fri., July 1, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $8
In addition to polishing off their weight in whiskey, the blue-collar musicians of the Tumblers have polished their sound on full-length number two, America Toil. The local sextet's debut, The Earth Shall Become My Throne, was a tears-in-beers collection of heavy burden country rock capped by the robust vocals of Tyler Gaston and Dean Gorman. Toil isn't a grand departure, but it's significantly less mournful than their previous material, as numbers like the bluesy "Canary in a Coal Mine" take an abrupt change in direction when a jaunty little whistle solo appears in the middle of the song. The title track is straight-up Americana, a bold rock number propped up by an excellent slide guitar hook that lingers long after the song—and the ice that cools your bourbon—melts away.
