Russian Racehorse, the debut album from Minneapolis-based roots rockers Carp 18 shows amazing range. From the punky Husker Du-esque "Man on a Mission" and "I Luv Luv" to a host of jangly tunes to atribute to boy sleuth Encyclopedia Brown, Russian Racehorse shows that a group of northern boys with guitars can rock out in many ways. Some of the more clever sounds have echoes of irony-infused bands like the Modern Lovers, while the countryfied aggressive style of the band as a whole can make them sound like a backing band for Steve Earle. Overall this is a fine collection for a newly minted band with a few rough edges, but a lot of promise.
