JASON HAWK HARRIS: Love & the Dark: CD

Dec 06, 2019

This is a really pleasant country record. It’s just not my kinda county record. I don’t need country to be doggedly authentic, but the modern flourishes here don’t work for me. Little piano parts and pedal steel sweeps seem pieced in, rather than an organic part of the song. And there’s a guitar solo that sounds like some indie rock bullshit and not anything that would ever come out of Trigger. It’s all very clean and tame. –Emma Alice Johnson (Bloodshot)
