Old Crow Medicine Show sound like a prewar string band filtered through Uncle Tupelo via Nirvana, and if they aren't bluegrass by any stretch of the imagination, they are every bit as energetic as a breakneck bluegrass combo.

Their fourth studio album, the Ted Hutt-produced Carry Me Back, is a ragged, breakneck romp that crackles with more energy than a thrash band on Red Bull. The old string bands were dance ensembles, but it's difficult to imagine dancers keeping up very long to tracks like Carry Me Back to Virginia, Mississippi Saturday Night, and Sewanee Mountain Catfight, all of which are unhinged speed shuffles that roar by faster than a NASCAR race.

Old Crow Medicine Show haven't painted themselves into a creative corner, managing somehow to sound both old and refreshingly new at once.
