The new Dirty River Boys album is every bit of excellent as you would expect, and then some.

Down By The River commences the self-titled record with some dirty, gritty vocals featuring Ray Wylie Hubbard. The album closes with Falcon's Song, a very intimate, classic troubadour tune: "...and then he turned his horse and rode off in this damn El Paso wind." Both of which, happen to be my favorites.

In between, you'll find some Irish-inspired tunes, soul-grabbing songs and of course, the classic DRB drinking jams. You done well, dirty boys.
