The Felice Brothers "Tonight at the Arizona" (2007)
While these guys are often considered some sort of country band, in my mind they're clearly on the rock side of the divide. That's not to say that there are traditional elements or influences in their music. Yes, they are there. But the playing and singing itself come from a sloppy indie rock place. Imagine if the Band had started out playing 90s indie rock instead of rockabilly.
Anyway, Tonight at the Arizona may be my favorite of their albums. Mostly that's due to song selection. While I haven't bothered to compare track lists, it feels like most of my favorite songs are here.
