Formed nearly 30 years ago, the Bottle Rockets helped forge a now-popular subgenre—small-town, middle-class, Midwest American roots rock—part right-to-the-gut poetry, part rock ‘n’ roll, all truth. In 2018, the St. Louis natives released their 13th album, Bit Logic, and it is fresh take on their signature folk rock style.
