Everyone knew the general public's sudden fascination with old-timey music sparked by the O Brother Where Art Thou? soundtrack wouldn't last much longer than the movie's theatre run. That doesn't appear to have had any noticeable effect on our own Backstabbers, who've kept themselves trend-proof by shrewdly avoiding throwback clichés in songs that deal with the timeless themes of regret, heartache and getting wasted. They hold fast to their authentically rootsy string band twang on the Don Kerr-produced Deep, Dark & Dangerous, with exceptionally well-crafted tunes that remain relevant to the moment and their cultural milieu. That means you get moving laments about Queen West gentrification instead of mining for coal or riding boxcars. Tight and right.
