The Juno award wining string bender fires up an Americana outing that seems informed by 70s Ry Cooder and Dan Hicks. Focusing on working with a band this time out and letting electric slide guitar lead the way, this set is more off the clock than it is after hours. Loaded with a structured looseness that gives you the confidence in Dawson's confidence that he won't let you down, this is a sure bet for both old hippies and nu hipsters who appreciate sounds that color outside the lines but make a great mosaic just the same. Well done.
