Album Notes
On State Center, the Hasslers find themselves in familiar territory, singing songs about Western culture, growing up in Montana, and tackling the throes of substance abuse head on. The difference this time around is that they've completely fleshed it out. Both lyrically and musically, these kids are hitting on all cylinders and really showing the musical community that you don't have to be from the South to write visceral, heartbreaking, relatable, and often guterenchingly honest songs.
On tracks like 'Sound It Out,' we see the band foray into roots-rock territory with horn lines and an off-the charts Organ solo. On tracks like 'Born Again Blues' and 'Loves Company' we're reminded that there is a cunning wit behind all that musicianship, and it leaves the listener feeling personally connected to and often trapped in these portrayals of rural Western youth.
On the heels of game-changers like Jason Isbell and James McMurtry, the Hasslers are finding ways to tell stories untold,
from the road less-travelled, and they'll likely have you singing along by the time they're through. - Daniel Joyner, Shantylife Studios
