Reviews of the new album in Rolling Stone and Uncut Magazine

The reviews for the new album on Third Man Records are starting to come in! Read the Rolling Stone review here. To have a look at the Uncut review, pick up a copy of the July 2013 edition on newsstands everywhere… here’s a snippet: “Like an old-timey radio signal set to ‘Roaring ’20s’ and blasting out jump blues, western swing, primordial jazz, ragtime and string-band tunes on the ol’ Philco, Midwesterner Pokey LaFarge infuses would-be moribund styles with rare vigour, though lyrical concerns (especially on ‘Close the Door’, where the protagonist would just as soon die as pay the doctor’s bill) are anything but nostalgia… highlights like ‘The Bowlegged Woman” and the magnetic opener ‘Central Time’ crackle with the dynamism of long-dormant forces reawakened. 8 out of 10.”
