TRUCKSTOP HONEYMOON

THE MADNESS OF HAPPINESS

2014-05-13

The Method of Happiness is Truckstop Honeymoon's eighth recording of what they call "Tales of cheating spouses, bad attitudes, short-change romances, endless asphalt and dodgy diners, all told with a "Psychobilly" sense of playfulness, ringing banjo and a bass as certain as a highway centerline." Husband and wife team Mike and Katie are New Orleans transplants living in Kansas and have toured the world with their four kids and drawing inspiration for their songs from the crazy observations found in ordinary life. It is impossible to listen to the fifteen stories found on this disc without smiling with the Madness Of Happiness. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
