Drag It Up

Producer (group): New West

Experienced enough to have some perspective on life, the veteran (and aptly named) Old 97’s spend their rootsy sixth disc recalling growing up. The CD opens with a birth (the cathartic ”Won’t Be Home”) and ends with a death (the mournful ”No Mother”), and in between covers love and loss with dreamy nostalgia (”Bloomington”) and utter goofiness (”Coahuila,” where they rhyme ”ravioli” with ”kind of lonely”).
