94. Deer Tick - ‘Born on Flag Day’ + Gentlemen Johnson

Deer Tick - ‘Born on Flag Day’ + Gentlemen Johnson

Ingredients:  2 ounces bourbon, 5 ounces unsweetened iced tea, 1/2 ounce Cointreau, 1 mint sprig, 1 lemon wedge

Mixing Instructions:Fill a highball glass with ice and add  bourbon, Cointreau and iced tea.  Stir. Garnish with the mint sprig and lemon wedge.

Notes:  It takes less than 20 seconds listening to the opening track “Easy” to realize you’re about to be taken for a rock journey with Born on Flag Day.  Just thinking about the track gets my heel dropping to the beat.  When John McCauley comes in with his gritty vocals after the minute-long intro, the album kicks off and keeps you going for the next 40 minutes.  Hard tracks, easier tracks, a killer duet, and a live rendition of Goodnight, Irene… in this case, the right equation for an excellent album and memorable music experience.
