Ha Ha Tonka is the unmistakable rock band comprised of Brett Anderson, Lucas Long and Brian Roberts. The band toys with the theme of living beyond a normal lifetime- the concept of reliving and rewriting our lives, and the lessons we can all learn along the wa. .Heart - Shaped Mountain. It was the death of a decade It was the harbinger of a new age It was the death of a decade I saw the curtain fall upon your stage. I was just about to change Man, I've gotta change my ways. Track Name: No Great Harm.

Missouri’s Ha Ha Tonka play roots rock with plenty of Southern ancestry laced throughout. The mandolin firing from the sidelines of Usual Suspects, the honky-tonk feel of Lonely Fortunes and Brian Roberts’ Americana-inspired vocals tell the tale of a Southern Rock band that’s passionate without getting silly or pompous about it. Lennon Bone’s drums never overpower the group, but gently brush through to allow the ensemble playing to take center stage. Made Example Of has beautifully loose harmonies that sound as if the band could be the scrappy kid brother to the Jayhawks.

And while Ha Ha Tonka have sounded very good on their previous albums, Death of a Decade finds them playing with greater strength and confidence than ever before.

Ha Ha Tonka spends their time on Death of a Decade indulging fully in the country mythos – singing about small town drama, westward expansion, loneliness, manhood, and religion – and the majority of the album packs an authentic, rustic punch. Usual Suspects begins with the album soaring mandolin melody accompanying gruff, twangy vocal harmonies. This upbeat tempo is where the band hits their stride, triumphantly combining handclaps and a crescendo-ing titular repetition. Unfortunately, this formula grows tired by the end of the album and paired alongside questionable tempo decisions, Death of a Decade ultimately loses too much steam for redemption.

Ha Ha Tonka have never mastered the storytelling chops of the Drive-By Truckers or the Hold Steady, but with each album, the Missouri quartet struggle to carve out their own niche as Ozark rockers. Their debut, Buckle in the Bible Belt, offered up a handful of ballsy, blustery songs about regional identity and healthcare woes, and the follow-up stripped their sound to an acoustic shambles, which makes Death sound like an attempt to split the difference between the two. It works for a while.

A couple of rootsy, passionate, scruffy groups such as Mumford & Sons did their thing at the Grammy Awards this year, exposing their music to a relatively vast audience in one fell swoop. Mumford’s music is fine, but it’s a shame that Ha Ha Tonka couldn’t have taken that group’s spot. The Missouri quartet is not only authentically scruffy, it tears at the heart of American roots music with every chord like Mumford only pretends to, and its new record, Death of a Decade, basically oozes passion for the craft. Named for a park in its home state, Ha Ha Tonka. Ha Ha Tonka performs Friday at Red Palace, 1210 H St. NE. Visit ww. edpalacedc.
