Short acoustic Americana styled song. With shades of the band Beirut mixed with the vocal spirit of Chris Isaak, it's got a dreamy ambience that hypnotises you into an almost seductive world of lilting, off beat guitar and drums, interjected with whistled themes and string runs. Direct, classy and smooth.
Sweet country music track. Upbeat and full of movement, it has great piano and guitar licks coupled with subtle background harmonies to create an authentic country flavour. Singing about his love for a girl, it's a sugar-coated effort to sway her - for his sake, let's hope the super clean vocals, catchy choruses and great production are enough.
Feel good country track. Male vocals sing of a girl coming into his life, lighting it up and loving him despite having no money. So no gold diggers here, just hot country guitar and piano licks over strummed guitar and a rock steady rhythm section. Very upbeat and positive, with catchy harmonies and choruses, it's not overly sugar coated, even if it's definitely sweet.
Dark alt country/Americana rock, with a swing beat. Soft and intimate through the dreamy vocals and reverb soaked slide guitar, yet energetic enough through the bouncing bass line and solid drums, the track manages to marry dark lyrics with melodic leads for a slightly mysterious and even psychedelic, hypnotic overall feel.
Ambient Western track, in no hurry to get anywhere in particular. Soaking up the desert heat at walking pace, it's a beautifully constructed mix of shimmering strummed electric guitar chords, tremolo and slide leads, whistles and harmonica that oozes Americana. Percussive hand drums add some horse flavours to the theme, a theme that at times is sad and nostalgic, at others more comfortable in its solitude, but portrays a lot more than just cowboys and saddle sores.
Lush folk pop song about finding the girl of your dreams, featuring harmonized vocals, acoustic guitar, and lap steel. With its soft, lilting flow and rich simplicity, it gives you a real sense of freedom and authenticity. Mix that with its clean production and well crafted structure, add in a catchy, melodic chorus, and you have a track of real quality that does its job with the minimum of fuss and maximum of values. A fresh, modern take on 1970s Americana.
