[CROOKED ROOTS] Ten years have gone by since the Baptist Generals released their weird, wonderful Sub Pop debut, No Silver/No Gold. That\'s an unavoidable stat when discussing the Denton, Texas, band\'s sophomore album, Jackleg Devotional to the Heart, which appeared in May. That first album, with its hissy, tin-shed take on acoustic folk, suggested that singer and in-house genius Chris Flemmons would spend the ensuing decade producing all manner of uber-lo-fi, stream-of-consciousness recordings from whatever wooded basement he happened to be transmitting from. Instead, he scrapped a potential followup in 2005 and devoted much of his time to putting on an annual local music festival in his hometown. You\'d expect Jackleg, then, to sound either tossed off or terribly belabored. Somehow, Flemmons splits the difference: It\'s a meticulous album, expanding on the Generals\' bent, indie-rock-damaged vision of Americana, while simultaneously sounding like it just plopped out of Flemmons\' head one day.  Plus, it\'s got a song called \"Clitorpus Cristi,\" which must be some kind of interstate dis only Texans understand.
