    Consistent and authentic throughout, Pokey LaFarge is an essential new record for anyone who appreciates old sounds.

    LaFarge’s slight country drawl and understated twang nails the ’20s period the music evokes, and the effort is even more rewarding than Diana Krall’s recent endeavor in the same genre.

    Midwesterner Pokey LaFarge infuses would-be moribund styles with rare vigour, though lyrical concerns are anything but nostalgia. [Jul 2013, p.77]

    Pokey will invite you to step away from the modern, more complex times and immerse yourself in a period of music from the mid western USA which formed the heart and soul of the country. It is a trip well worth it.

    It's music as vivid as your last disaster.

    The vibe on this debut for Jack White's Third Man label is pre-rock'n'roll.
  7. 60
    Ragtime and country, jazz and swing; all swirl together on this collection of expertly formed roots nuggets.
