Tropes:

  • Album Intro Track: "Kentucky Bourbon" serves as this for Good Morning, Magpie.
  • Album Title Drop: It was not until 2015's Big Dark Love that they would play this straight with the track of the same name.
  • Badass Baritone: With the dropping of 2006's In Bocca al Lupo came a noticeable lowering of Adam's Voice. It's not for nothing he gets compared to Johnny Cash.
  • Concept Album: Several.
  • Creator Couple: Adam and Sarah are married, but you wouldn't guess it from watching them perform.
  • Ode to Intoxication: "As Long as There is Whiskey in the World."
