Folk & Country: Year in Review 2010
With a wink and a dirty grin, Jason Collett cranked all the dials on his fifth solo album. This time around, his raspy drawl is a little twangier and his retro detailing a little glossier. Although he pays homage to myriad bygone musical styles, Collett adds a tart twist that turns familiar echoes into fresh sounds. Whether it's blowing out the speakers with screeching electric guitars or turning on the charm with its sparkling pop melodies, Rat a Tat Tat has enough irreverent groove to get a nation on its feet.
