'Most Messed Up' (album stream)
The disc was recorded in Austin with production handled by Salim Nourallah. It features guest appearances from Replacements hero Tommy Stinson and Jon Rauhouse (Neko Case).
Opening cut "Longer Than You've Been Alive" starts the album off with a bang, as acoustic strums give way to raw distortion over the course of nearly six minutes. This sets the record's shit-kicking mood, as rootsy country tunes are injected with noise and ragged energy. "There's a lot of darkness hidden in this record," frontman Rhett Miller said in a statement.
