United Steel Workers of Montreal - Broken Trucks and Bottles

The 2006 release from United Steel Workers of Montreal.

"Contrary to popular belief, not every band from Montreal with more than four members sounds like Arcade Fire; the United Steel Workers have developed their own alt-country subgenre they've dubbed "citygrass." For their latest disc, Broken Trucks And Bottles, USWM's rickety shuffles seem to draw inspiration from the Pogues and Tom Waits, which puts them in the neighbourhood of Peterborough's Silver Hearts, although their front-porch casual approach to picking and tunes like Goddamn The CPR actually put them closer to the Gourds in sound and concept. At times they lean a little too hard on the hayseed switch, but Broken Trucks And Bottles has no shortage of closing-time charm." - NOW
