Irreverent, authentic, and deceptively complex: no one here is trying too hard to be pure. The Hudson Valley based acoustic quartet Yard Sale plays a ramshackle, hip, and politically potent Americana music, equally in love with Ernest Tubb and with Sam Cooke. Yard Sale’s debut full-length Every Day moves from backwoods holler-alongs and heartbreakers (“Dog Gone Shame,” “Bastard”) to art-folk gems (“Every Day”) to topical and progressive new-folk (“Media,”), and a variety of groove songs that reveal the band’s abiding love of gospel and old soul. Like the best folk and soul, Every Day speaks unironically of troubled times and of the evergreen power of music to transmit the grit of real experience.
