On Rail Car, Patrick Doherty takes time off from fronting his jagged indie rock outfit, Wheelies, to showcase himself as a singer-songwriter. Rail Car's indie folk-pop is a new direction for Doherty, and one that allows him to stretch his legs and show off what he can do once all the fuzz is stripped away. As a singer, Doherty's deadpan vocals are laidback and unforced, giving the impression of a late-night acoustic jam amongst friends around a kitchen table. Featuring contributions from Tacoma's finest, like the Nightgowns' Kyle Brunette, Makeup Monsters' Jay Clancy, and Wheelies' Joseph Yohann, Rail Car is a time capsule not only for Doherty, but for Tacoma as well.
