1. AllMusic - Rick Anderson
Audacious as ever, the Austin-based country rockers Bad Livers continue to perfect their songwriting skills on INDUSTRY AND THRIFT. The Livers have come a long way since their inception as a band, when they covered rock songs (ranging from Iggy Pop to Motorhead) in a hyper-bluegrass style all their own. On their fifth album, the Livers consist of a core duo of bassist Mark Rubin and Danny Barnes on banjo and vocals, surrounded by an extended musical family (including a trademark loudmouth tuba). All manage to have a great time while putting their musical aptitude front and center on songs like "Brand New Hat," with its fast-pickin' intro and warped, slow motion finale. In a musical era with an abundance of insurgent country bands, Bad Livers stand out as authentic rebels, bringing a true punk sensibility to their down-home, twangy music and lyrical gloom and goofiness.
