Record Rack: A weekly round-up of the pertinent new releases hitting stores this Tuesday.
ARTIST: The Farmers
BACKSTORY: The survivors of ’80s cowpunk faves The Beat Farmers have soldiered on despite the deaths of two of their three lead singers (Country Dick Montana in 1995 and Buddy Blue in 2006). Like The Dead, they’ve shortened their name to the Jerry Raney-led Farmers, and now have a brand-new disc out.
