Sean-Patrick and the Newgrass Revolution certainly have a gift for melody. You'll find yourself humming any or all of these 14 tracks shortly after listening. Following up on their debut full-length, About Time, the band brings home another big serving of line-danceable alt-country shuffles. Their unique brand of rootsy Americana is wielded lovingly by the band, as their name implies. Relentlessly touring, the band has proven to be a hardworking part of Erie's music community. The sound is forged cleanly, streamlined like an arrow directly on target. Folk sensibilities drive frontman Sean-Patrick Dunn. Crafting warm-sounding ditties from bitter perspectives, Dunn harnesses simple songwriting elements to great effect. The persona crafted is a fiercely independent, largely unrepentant, hard-drinking vagabond. It's a "love it or leave it" attitude, with lyrics that some might find questionable. For the most part, it's a recipe that works, full of ups and downs and plenty of sizzling tracks.
