“a pop-perfect bit of alt-country, beset by a frail, ethereal synth whisper, like a ghost shooting through the farm, blowing up stalks of hay before finally crashing face-first into a wall” – Pitchfork Media

Backyard Tire Fire :: Skin And Bones EP
Illinois based Backyard Tire Fire may be new to me, but they have been at it for a good while now, having released four proper albums, with another on schedule for January 2006. In the meantime the band have released the Skin And Bones EP to tide their fans over. Comprised of four studio cuts and two live tracks, Skin And Bones proves to be a quick jaunt into the band’s rock & roll & alt.country Drive-by Truckers-esque sound.
