Charismo is the Hackensaw Boys record youve been waiting to hear. The 11-track album feels like the zenith release of the bands 17 years, gathering their diverse life experiences and myriad of roots influences, and crystallizing them into a magnum opus on the Hackensaw way of being. Traditional Appalachian and Delta music lay the groundwork, but its injected with a heavy dose of the contemporary, good-times-roll kind of spit and vinegar the band has become known for over the years. Produced by Larry Campbellwho has lent his talents to Bob Dylan, Levon Helm and countless othersCharismo sees the band reeled in and slightly refined, though still as spirited as ever. The songs (all written by longtime Hackensaws David Sickmen and Ferd Moyse) are tinged with an attitude of scrappy resilience, spinning tales and metaphors of everyday, working class struggles and triumphs. With Campbells production, the Hackensaws somewhat casual, porch-front aesthetic is sharpened around the edges, focusing in on the simple beauty of their melodies and the earnestness in their delivery.
