Earl Musick

Duck & Cover (Reload Record Company)

By Tom Geddie

Earl Musickís fourth album, Duck & Cover, is made possible by the convergence of local talent with modern technology available to almost anyone with the few bucks needed to cobble together a studio. In this case, the result is a low-budget, sincere, pleasant, country and country-rock listen with a social conscience, addressed ďTo whom it may concern.Ē The Fort Worth-based Musick isnít happy with the post-Katrina situation or the war in Iraq, but he wonít quite call Duck & Cover a protest album. A dozen songs, sometimes a little uneven, deal gently with those subjects but also range into colorful commentaries about working-class life and struggles, love, lust, a confident woman who could strut sitting down, and more. Although Musick and his music arenít likely to ever make it onto modern country radioís hit lists, itís still nice to hear what independent artists write, sing, and play. The Music Industry could learn from the motto of Musickís Reload Record Company: ďIf music ainít got no edge, itís dull.Ē
