“The band’s new full-length The Whole Fam Damnily was recorded at a church in Bloomington, Indiana, just down the road from where the band live.
“From the rowdy and rancorous opener ‘Can’t Pay The Bill’ to the melodic, slide-guitar-driven barnburner ‘Wal-Mart Killed The Country Store’ and heartfelt fingerstyle ballad ‘What’s Mine Is Yours,’ the album is a timeless collection of songs that defies age and era—and pays homage to the band’s influences without imitating them.
“We come from the same tradition that Charley Patton and Furry Lewis came from; they just took off with their instruments and went out into the world to see what would stick,” Peyton elaborates. “They sang about what they were going through in their time and we’re doing the same thing in ours.”
