6am repeat :: the breakmen

6am Repeat is a recurring feature here at Folk Hive in which we stream the latest track that plays incessantly in the earbuds when we awake at that hour and imbibe massive amounts of coffee and cigarettes in preparation for the advancing day.  Consider it your jam of the day — a sweet, sweet gift from me to you.  I love you, dude.

If today’s country radio contained more of this brand of jams and less of say, Keith Urban and fucking Kenny Chesney, I might actually listen to it.  If country radio placed more stock in muscianship instead of working so hard to be the conservative alternative to Top 40 radio, then I might listen to it.  If country radio played a band like The Breakmen every now and then, I’d certainly listen to it.  There just isn’t enough mellow Americana out there these days…unless you’re willing to dig for it in Canada, apparently…
