Amoeba Review

07/22/2013

Modeling themselves after something like The Band, T&SC are a band consisting of four distinct songwriting voices which get expressed in real life mouth-voices, often at the same time, in harmony. I hear mandolins, organs, crisp drums, plaintive Telecasters, pseudo-Southern-probably-by-way-of-Bakersfield drawls, and an overwhelming earnestness that often comes free with this sort of Eagles/Allman worshiping mellow country rock. Big ballads, gently thumping midtempo rockers, and bluegrass metaphysics occupy this second album from the L.A. group. There are definitely strains of commercial country in this music, which makes it more interesting to me than another retro country-rock band from L.A. As a result, it has a pretty unique crossover potential with a polish inherited from the radio-country-rock of the late '70s but with the sort of singing and sound palette more associated with acts like Kenny Chesney and his ilk. Slick, smart, interesting music.
