STICKPONY, Under the Beer Lights

HELLO STRANGER: Beer Lights is ragged Austin roots-rockers Stickpony's first CD since 2000's Smiling Into Nowhere. The band's progress was derailed by frontman Brit Jones' multiple surgeries; he's feeling much better now, thanks.

TONIGHT THE BOTTLE LET ME DOWN: As on Smiling, much of Beer Lights consists of acutely rendered portraits of life at last call. Try "Friends Like These," "Little Ol' Wine Drinker, Me," and "Drunk Waiting to Happen."

DUDE LOOKS LIKE A LADY: The raucous "TX Tabloid (Hickoid Wannabe)" is a tribute to the Hickoids, the perpetually soused Austin cowpunks who loved performing in drag.

CD release Friday, Nov. 12 at the Carousel.
