Ride Again

Diacon-Panthers follow in the footsteps of the late, lamented Dixie Dirt and lace their scrappy indie rock with heavy doses of Southern twang on the new EP Ride Again. The result is a short record that weaves rough-hewn Crazy Horse swagger (the stomping boogie of “Curses”) with indie quirkiness (“Hot Grey Lips,” “On a Mountain”) and a kind of rock classicism (“It’s Been a Long Day”) into a surprisingly seamless whole. Besides Dixie Dirt, Diacon-Panthers draw an obvious inspiration from My Morning Jacket—check singer/guitarist Natan Diacon-Furtado’s high-pitched vocals and Jeremy Given’s Fender Rhodes—but they still have a biting aggression that Jacket lost a long time ago.
