Album Review: II


Title:  II (Official, BandCamp)
Artist:  The Fucking Buckaroos (Official, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, BandCamp, Last.fm, ReverbNation, SoundCloud, Wikipedia)

The Fucking Buckaroos is a bluegrass-punk band, not unlike Old Man Markley.  Their latest release, II, is a dark, yet fun romp touching on the subjects of love, death, vampires, and a great cover of “I Saw the Light.”  Bluegrass is an exceptionally fun, albeit often very gloomy, style of music.  It’s incredibly high energy levels make it nearly impossible to not tap your toes along to the beat and The Fucking Buckaroos play it as well as anyone I’ve heard.  II is a very good record and a must for fans of bluegrass or the likes of the aforementioned Old Man Markley.
