Looking for a Fight

This week's slice of Americana comes courtesy of The Sweetback Sisters with a couple of tracks from their second album from 2011 Looking For a Fight.
Based in Brooklyn as opposed to the deep South they are actually a sextet with two co-lead singers Zara Bode and Emily Miller.
They are a sort of retro- country tribute act and to me some of their songs work and others don't.
For me these two work.A credible cover of a Dwight Yoakam classic followed by a song which has a touch of Freakwater about it

  1. First track today - doesn't it just want to make you play the original?
    Second track - reminiscent of Sin City, not too bad
