Jeff's Best of 2019 - #2: Spirit Family Reunion - Ride Free

Spirit Family Reunion has a lot going for them anyway, but has been a favorite of this blog arguably ever since we saw them open for David Wax Museum way back in 2011. This latest album was a long-awaited follow-up to another album we loved of theirs, and not only did it meet those expectations, but exceeded them.

Spirit Family Reunion has become a band that is not only a celebration of old-style folk and bluegrass, but embraces the sound and expands on it. The lineup is larger, the instrumentation more complex, but they still have a washboard and they still play infectious songs that will not leave your head or your psyche without significant effort. From the opening track of Ride Free, "One Way Ticket," you get a great idea as to not only what they're trying to accomplish, but how far they've come.

Easily one of the best of the year, and one that rarely left my rotation.

Songs of note: "One Way Ticket," "Whoopie Ti Yi Yo," "Gradual Power."
