For all its catchiness and hook-laden composition, Turn 4’s latest cut, What You Do About It, never really strays from the typical alt-country clichés. Songs about trains, trucks, guitars and the weather pepper the album, but the strained vocal delivery with its forced twang can become tough to swallow for the duration of seventeen songs. The instrumentation is good: it’s obvious that these guys know what they’re doing, and they channel a certain Bob Seger-like charm. If you’re looking for something completely out there, however, you won’t find it here. Alt-country fans give it a listen; you might like what you find on What You Do About It.
