Among other influences, Little Rock's Freedom Bureau mines a similar vein of scratchy, off-kilter Americana as David Berman's brilliant Silver Jews did in that band's early years — shambolic and perfectly out-of-tune, informed in equal measure by folk rock, noise rock and classic rock and unafraid to get weird.
The Bureau's got all that down, friends. Just check out "Gold Mine" for proof.
