2nd The Sugar Bird Test

““For Are You Going to Eat That?, Josh Roberts pours a few fingers of whiskey, pulls up a stool and grabs an acoustic guitar for a seven-song sabbatical from the Hinges, his regular rock outfit out of Columbia, SC. The time off is well spent. “The Reformation” with Leslie Branham on harmony vocals has the feel of a classic Johnny & June Carter Cash collaboration without coming off as petty larceny; “My Sweet” leans more to the Gram Parsons/Emmylou Harris side of duets. “Wasp In Dirt Dauber’s Clothes” shares the same punk-rock simplicity as Link Wray’s “Rumble ‘65.” Roberts ponders his unorthodox outlawlessness on “I Guess I’m A Bit Of An Outlaw After All” and contemplates the meaning of life (and shows he’s no slouch on the slide guitar) on “Atom Inhabiter,” but it never comes off as idle navel gazing.”
