I forgot I bought this, almost bought it again. Softer voiced Steve Earler, stabler Townes Van Zandt, a chiller Gram Parsons: these more artsy country icons.
Favorite track: Failure (Matthew Lee Cothran).
This record is pretty much perfect as it is, and could only have benefited from more tracks in this vein. I'm not sure how Shelf Life does it, but I hope he keeps at it.
Favorite track: Sit in Sin.
