    Seven years after what was thought to be a one-off side project, NINE HIGH A PALLET, Brute reconvened and created a second album. The band is a collaboration between Widespread Panic and Vic Chesnutt. The resulting songs give the former a scruffier edginess and the latter more heft and thrust. The songs are all written by Chesnutt, who's shown himself to be adept at drawing on the character of the ensembles he's worked with (including Lambchop and Friends of Dean Martinez) in the past.
    The 11 songs offer a range of primarily southern characters, undergoing a range of ethical and moral dilemmas (one even being titled "Morally Challenged"). The song structures are carefully delineated, eschewing the jamming interests of the Widespread Panic in favor of concise solos within the body of the lyrical narrative. It's great to hear Chesnutt singing over such potent riffs (as on "Puppy sleeps").
