EP Review: Hobo’s Lament

Title:  Hobo’s Lament (Official, Paper + Plastick Records, Amazon, iTunes)
Artist:  Larry and His Flask (Official, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, BandCamp, ReverbNation,, Wikipedia)

Larry and His Flask’s latest EP is six songs of bluegrass punk goodness.  This band obviously has a great time playing their music and that energy and enthusiasm is crystal clear on Hobo’s LamentBluegrass has always been boot stompin’ music but when played through the lens of punk rock, you get a manic blast and Larry and His Flask are masters at it.  Of the bands out there mixing bluegrass and punk, Larry and His Flask do it best.  Within the first few seconds of the opening track “Closed Doors” you know you’ve hit on something special.
