Southern Culture on the Skids, Liquored Up and Lacquered Down (TVT Records/ EMusic): The North Carolina four-piece's latest is proof positive that rusty trailers, big hair and booze can translate into some darn fine hootin'-and-hollerin', farm-rockin' tunes. Southern Culture on the Skids make use of country, R&B, rockabilly, Tex-Mex and swampy blues to explore back-country (i.e. white trash/redneck) life. "Drunk and Lonesome (Again)" is classic Hank Williams-styled country with a classic morning-after lyric: "Did we meet in a bar?/ Did we talk about cars?/ I was drunk and alone/ That's how you took me home." — Jenny Tatone
