[SLEEP COUNTRY USA] ’Tis better, they say, to be trampled by turtles than to be lulled to sleep by them. Wait, no they don't. But that aptly describes Minnesota's Trampled by Turtles, which has spent the past decade drawing audiences with a beautifully melodic mix of folk, country, hippiegrass and rock that calls to mind everything from Neil Young to the Avett Brothers and Charlie Daniels. That robustness, though, is as hard for the band to balance on last month's Stars and Satellites as it was on the band's previous five records: TBT gets you buzzing with electricity (the pre-show gooballs you ate help), then drops into slow lullabies that would be better enjoyed from a hammock (the gooballs don't help with that one). More uppers, please!
