"Any Day Now" by The Far West on iTunes

13 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

The Far West recorded their first album at an American Legion post while the bar was open for business, and this one was recorded at a vintage hot-rod repair shop. It’s in keeping with a naturalism that informs all the band’s work, where an alt.country sound is expanded by songwriting that’s plenty strong with setting the scene. Producer Colin McLean is only following the band’s instincts by picking unusual places to record. It’s perfectly in line for a band with singer/guitarist Lee Briante of New York’s Hudson Valley, bassist/singer/mandolinist Robert Black, Chicago native guitarist/singer Aaron Bakker, keyboardist James Williams, and drummer Travis Popichak. Together, they hit the honky-tonk on “Words from a Letter,” explore Hollywood with a touch of Bakerfield for Briante’s “On the Road,” visit Briante’s home for “Hudson Valley," and nab a slice of “Minnie the Moocher” on “Leonard,” their tribute to the folk artist who built the famed Salvation Mountain in the California desert.

Great!

Megimango,

Thanks to Grace Helbig (of Camp Takota fame), I heard of this group! Very mellow, a bit country, a bit folk, with great vocals and song writing.

Gosh Dangnabbit!

Bubbly bloop,

I heard of these guys from itsgrace and they speak to my soul. They perfectly have that almost summer, Johnny cash, alternative vibe
