Eugene, Oregon's Tom Heinl has managed to make an record in 2003 that sounds is if it is at least 30 years old. The sad-sack but comical alt-country and truck drivin' album simply sounds like an artifact of another time and place. At first, it's difficult to determine if Heinl is being serious, though it hardly seems to matter when he crafts such contagious tunes, from the Seger-esque grit of "Pinto Squire," to the mobile home anthem "Trailer Fever." When this record ends it starts up all over again, and this time without vocals &emdash; yes, Stereoke! Tom is crazy, but with the deep croon he copped from Lee Hazlewood and genuine songwriting talent, he's right up there with Ween, making ridiculous music that, as it turns out, is darn good.
