Just when you thought Southern rock was said and done,

along comes Beitthemeans, swaggering out from a dark shed

somewhere deep in the pines of Sylacauga, Alabama. The

name is fitting for a trio that is all about

boots straps, whether its pulling them up or using them to

beat their way out of a smoldering genre that could benefit

from a whipping or two. With swelling rifts, bluesy

throwbacks and a lead singer with a screech that must be

part owl, BITM certainly cracks the whip on Southern Rock.
