The

Far West have an authentically Americana sound that’s been described as

something like Waylon’s band jamming with Wilco. In keeping with the W

theme one also hears a little Willie, Whiskeytown and Woody, as in

Guthrie, in their music. Their songs are highly personal, introspective

and original and betray a deep love of American music that runs from

‘Nashville Skyline’ to the Opry of the 1950’s, from the red dirt of

South Texas to the streets of Bakersfield. It’s music you can dance to,

start a brawl with or cry in your beer over, however the spirit moves

you.

The

thing is, these guys put together a bunch of original songs and ...

it's a boffo blast of twang, drinking songs and music to make you want

to head out on the dance floor. Or you can just sit at the stick and cry

into your beer. Either works

- No Depression

Usually one

picks up, for better or worse, on a particular facet of an album, the

singing, the material, an instrument, the arrangements or

the production, but with this LA alternative country quintet you get a

seamless package, everything fits together like, well, I was going to

say a well-oiled machine, but that doesn’t work because there’s nothing

slick or mechanical about their debut... what I’m hearing is an

exceptionally good country band backing two remarkable Americana

songwriters

No

question, these guys are arguably amongst the discoveries of the last

year. Under the production of Amos McWoods the quartet achieves really

big things when it comes to crisp, balanced and flowing music bouncing

between traditional and modern styles.
