Right in my wheelhouse! While waiting for the new Son Volt CD to come out (the wait ends on Tuesday!), I’ve been biding my time with Drew Holcomb and The Neighbor’s ‘Good Light’. Holcomb and band haven’t really broken any new territory – they’ve just done a great job of nailing a very familiar alt-country sound.
There are a number of tracks on ‘Good Light’ that could have ended up as a “song of the week” but this one captures everything I love about this genre of music – twangy guitars, female backing vocals, and lyrical content about growing up in the south.
