Deer Tick

Rhode Island-based Deer Tick was a one-man band on War Elephant (2007): just John McCauley. His country-rock was better shaped on Born On Flag Day (2009) by a regular quartet, and on The Black Dirt Sessions (2008), that mostly contains leftovers from the 2008 sessions.

Divine Providence (2011) was a better (or at least more vibrant) exercise in trite bar-band stereotypes (The Bump, Let's All Go to the Bar) but hardly groundbreaking. Like its predecessors, it should have been an EP to remove all the fluff.

John McCauley formed the Diamond Rugs with the Los Lobos' saxophonist Steve Berlin, Ian Saint Pe of the Black Lips, Bryan Dufresne of Six Finger Satellite and others. Diamond Rugs (2012) was, at best, an eclectic collection of roots-rock, and, at worst, a waste of great talents.
