Divine Weeks - Through and Through (1987, Down Here/Restless)

Country time.  Kinda anyway.  You'd be hard pressed to fine a rock album (that still qualifies as one) that boasts more of an Americana vibe than Divine Week's Through and Through.  I'm not so much referring to the "New Depression" variant of alt-country that was codified by the likes of Uncle Tupelo and Ryan Adams in the early '90s, rather the slightly more vintage iteration championed by Green on Red, and to a lesser extent, Lone Justice.  Brimming with twang, heartland fervor, and no shortage of Southern drawl (be it legit or cleverly feigned), Through... cuts an earnest and passionate swath through searing guitar rockers and heavy-handed ballads.  A second Divine Weeks platter, Never Get Used to It, surfaced in 1991.  As a sidenote, Divine Weeks began life as The Need, who were more in the power pop mold from what I've heard.

01. Goddamn Real to Me
02. On a Soapbox
03. Can't Get You Out of My Mind
04. I'm Gonna Fall
05. Bitterness
06. Black Eye to the Sky
07. Dry September
08. In the Country (for Jim Carroll)
09. Higher Ground
10. When I Go
11. Wide Eyed

Good timing - I just tracked down Never Get Used to It (which is more of a hard rock record, like a less fucked-up Jane's Addiction with a better singer) than Americana. Anyway, I've been dying to hear this one, too.

Divine Weeks reunited for a new album. They sound better than ever. They even have a free download of it on their website. Pretty cool.
