Summer Platters

Are you ready for the Beaumonts? The first lyrics on this reissue of their 2010 debut might help you decide. "You can say what you want about me, but I never gave my husband chlamydia," sings Troy Wayne Delco. If that tickles your funny bone, you might enjoy some of the quintet's other tunes – "Let's Get Drunk," "Money for Drugs," "Big Fake Boobs" – all performed with wild-eyed Seventies country vibe. The other side of bro-country.
