Can't Put You Down

by Sodajerk

Country with a grain of alt. Imagine the child of Hank Williams Senior and The Replacements, proving that the country sound doesn't have to suck. This is drinking music at it's finest.

Album Notes
"Don't take our word for it: Sodajerk's twangy debut album may have been the most unjustly overlooked local release of the year. "Can't Put You Down" established this foursome as a heavyweight in the city's alt country world, with tunes like "Minutes From a Payphone" and "Make Believe" seeming to come from an alternate universe where REM was born in Memphis instead of Athens. "You don't have to drive a truck to sing country," croons Bucky Goldstein on "Do it Again Daddy-o"; the song proves him wonderfully correct."---In Pittsburgh Magazine

"This could be the best original sound to come out of Pittsburgh since, well, I don't know when! The band has fused a classic rockabilly sound with a slightly modern vocal style. The lyrics are fresh too. Overall the music creates a good energy. The songs don't drag on; Sodajerk knows how to do it, do it well and quit. It's not overwhelming, you're never bored and even the sad songs put you in a good mood. That shows true talent. Guarenteed, you'll be smiling and dancing with a beer bottle in hand."---Rock n' Roll Reporter Magazine

"If there is a theme to the disc, it is that love sucks, relationships are depressing, ultimately lonley experiences ending in resentment and drinking binges. And yet, the lovline like material isn't all mournful ballads and tearful goodbyes. "Can't Put You Down" also displays it's country rock inspiration. For every weepy "shoulder to Die On", there is a rocking little "Rotisserie Gold"."---City Paper Magazine

"Wow! I just got back from visiting my girlfriend in Pittsburgh Pa. Just by chance we saw this band at a place called Fuel and Fuddle. We went there for some grub and lo and behold I was a happy clam. These guys, Sodajerk, are better musicians and generally have a better thing going on as compared and contrasted to Whiskeytown. I bought the CD "Can't Put You Down" and I have been happily listening to it ever since."---Sodajerk fan posting on the official Wilco website

Great First Album
Just like a pint of I.C. Light, great from start to finnish!!


Some of the most enjoyable drinking music ever!
Geez, the sad songs are even fun! A must for any fan of Old 97's or the like.


About the funnest thing to come down the pike since I don't know what! Seeing these guys live is the way to go, but the albums both capture the rawness that makes a night out on the town fun again!


Cry, cry, cry into your lone star
Alt country Social Ditortion of the millenium? Rockabilly meets Leonard Cohen? I don't know, but it's good stuff! Witty lyrics and a great almost-wanna-feel-good feel.


Cry right into your beer!
Social Distortion meets Johhny Cash? This record is fun (and kinda sad), and the lyrics are witty. Sort of a 'twang with a bang" feel!
