It’s only the second time Freakwater is celebrating the release of their 1993 album, Feels Like the Third Time, and one can reasonably expect a 40th anniversary tour in 2033. This time, singer/songwriters Janet Beveridge Bean and Catherine Irwin (the latter now also a LEO columnist) and bassist David Wayne Gay are enjoying a jaunt around some of the colder cities in honor of a red-hot classic. Third Time was, indeed, their third, featuring immortal creations like “My Old Drunk Friend” (later seen in Louisville’s best music movie to date, “Half-Cocked”), and remains one of the most-unimpeachable mementos of that era’s alt-country scene. Now available — for the first time — on vinyl, remastered with a download card, pick it up if all you have is some of that Mumford pabulum. —Peter Berkowitz
