Bobby Bare Jr.'s Young Criminals Starvation League, 'The Longest Meow' (Bloodshot)

8
The Longest Meow
Critical Mass
Label: Bloodshot

by Andrew Beaujon

Eleven songs recorded in 11 hours by an 11-person pickup band (featuring members of ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead and My Morning Jacket), The Longest Meow could've been a hipster train wreck. But Bobby Bare Jr. is no ordinary hipster. He's able to give both the calypso-country ballad "Sticky Chemical" and sloppy rocker "Borrow Your Cape" an off-kilter incandescence. And on winking tearjerker "Demon Valley," it's hard to tell what's sadder: the lyrics or the fact that the Replacements stopped writing songs this good when they grew up.
