Think Johnny Cash duetting with Nancy Sinatra; think alt.country from Detroit with Gothic overtones; think Nick Cave with a backwoods twang . . .
This band out of the Motor City USA has a real country heart, so much so that Jack White hooked them in to support Loretta Lynn on the Van Lear Rose album he produced for her.
Mainman Dan John Miller played Luther Perkins in the Cash bio-flick Walk the Line (his wife Tracee Mae who is also a mainspring of the band played Luther's wife), and they also appear on the recent Charlie Louvin album.
There is a darkness and Southern Gothic tone soaking these songs, and if it smacks a little of mining a pretty played out seam they still spring some memorable songs.
