Last Thursday night, I listened to an album that I hadn't heard in a few years - Ghosts of Hallelujah by The Gourds. Although I know that other bands are more readily identified as alt-country legends, this album stands for me as one of the finest examples of the genre ever created. I'm certainly not a music writer, so I'm not going to expound on the reasons why I hold this opinion. But I invite you to investigate.
