Not just an appealing, straight to the point album title, but the doorway to a vibrant & beautiful gathering of songs from a passionate songwriter.
The band have a sound that’s theirs; considerate songwriting, unique creativity, thoughtful structures, powerful statements & addictive riffs & melodies.
A beautiful collection of songs, from a notably sincere songwriter with an emotionally loaded yet somehow effortless sounding voice. A winning combination.
The juxtaposition of the concepts of pride & shame is appealing. The music feeds this intrigue further & affectionately holds your attention.
The crisp & heavy hit of country rock & roll explodes into action. The band have a clear knowledge & passion for the intricate style & skills of the genre.
These attentive observations come partly as metaphor, partly as reality. There’s a distinct presence of sadness, but it’s quite empowering to hear.
In a wonderful way, this unorthodox structure reflects perhaps the highs & lows of being an American right now & everything that comes with that.
The voice of the resistance, an anti-trump expression of freedom in the form of a creatively unique & impossible to ignore musical outpouring.
