This is the latest release from Andy Hawk and his relatively new band The Train Wreck Endings and on this evidence Tin Can Town goes a long way to putting rhythm and blues back into R&B. Full of bar-room ballads from start to finish Virginia based Hawk and his band, consisting of Chuck Bordelin on bass, Gary Rudinsky on lead guitar, Brandon Hickman on drums and Steve DeVries on just about everything else, produce a classic American, toe-tapping country sound. From the outset with “Think Too Much”, Hawk’s catchy and sometimes Springsteen like lyrics and powerful guitar combine superbly with DeVries’ strumming on the mandolin. The album progresses like a rock opera set amongst beer drinkers with a back drop of late night eateries, no better illustrated than by the terrific “Real Gone Girl”. There is a real sense of bitter sweet to Hawk’s lyrics with tales of lost love and ruined relationships set to a thundering up tempo sound-track provided by his latest collaborators. The album’s title track talks of a familiar feeling of home town frustration accompanied brilliantly by Schneck on acoustic guitar, whereas "The Last Two in the Bar" is the perfect curtain down for this album, a love song for anyone who has ever worn beer goggles at the end of a long night in the pub. If you like music that tells a tale or simply enjoy some good ole blues, Tin Can Town is for you, a bottle of whiskey whilst listening is optional.
