New Hackensaw Boys Single "Oval Room" Premieres on PopMatters

Here at Free Dirt, we’re thrilled the Hackensaw Boys decided to dust off the 1980s Blaze Foley song “Oval Room." Listen to the brand new single now via PopMatters! Thank goodness for Blaze’s mighty pen that so perfectly captures the feeling of political malaise, and for the Hackensaw Boys’ spirited interpretation (what better way to drive a point home than to bring in a children’s chorus to sing with you?). We hope it offers some comfort while the circus is in town...
