Poised for a global breakthrough following the left-field success of Dust Bowl Revival and incessant overseas touring, Mark "Ox" Browning decides not to swing for the wall on American Lo Fi. Instead, he settles for cheap pastiche and tongue-in-cheek yuks. A typically poor cover choice like doing Cheap Trick's Surrender hayseed style is a worse idea than any of the crowd-pleasing Springsteen tunes he tosses out at shows. But the bigger mistake is using the available technology at East Vancouver's Profile Studios and his cast of skilled musicians to contrive a creaky half-arsed basement vibe of a weekend home recording project. A waste of time, money and talent.
