Countrypolitan Favorites

The title is a tad misleading— these kamikaze covers don’t actually sound like the smooth “countrypolitan” hits of the 1960s. Instead, North Carolina rockers Southern Culture on the Skids take the genre-dissolving spirit of countrypolitan to the limit, tearing into country chestnuts like “Wolverton Mountain” and “Rose Garden” with rock brio and having honky-tonk fun with tunes by T. Rex and The Kinks. They even drag some Nashville history out of the closet: Onie Wheeler’s hit 1963 wife-swapping anthem “Let’s Invite Them Over.”
