O'Death, 'Head Home' (Ernest Jenning)

6
Head Home
Critical Mass
Label: Ernest Jenning

by Mackenzie Wilson

This Brooklyn-based quintet's punk-rock hoedown may sound like a kitschy joke. But vocalist Greg Jamie, who howls like Neil Young and hollers like Tom Waits, exudes an odd dignity and a restless intensity, and the band never lets up, from the hillbilly stomp of "Allie Mae Reynolds" to the banjos and brass of "Busted Old Church" to the high lonesome thunder of "Only Daughter." Head Home's wailing roar may not be authentic, but it's a flat-out hoot.
