It's been a long time.
Willy Vlautin has had other things on his mind and maybe putting together an album just hasn't been on the list for a while, but here it is finally, with a new band, with Sean from Richmond Fontaine (We love you Sean!) and it's like coming home again.
I've wanted this album for so long, and now it's here I'm lost for words that can do it justice. It's my kind of heaven. Willy Vlautin band album with pedal steel - that's all you need to know.
Amy is stunning, the looseness of the band, the ease and the feel, it put a lump in my throat from 30 seconds in, and it just works like you wouldn't believe.
I'm overwhelmed by it.

Two of the latter songs on this album by Willy Vlautin and his band The Delines sum up its central theme of people with a desperate, or even knowingly empty hope for a better life. Whilst the stories of each of these two is told by a separate female persona, every female persona across all of the 11 tracks is linked by their shared sense of ennui, a collective everyperson of accepting despondency – made beautifully plaintive by the haunting music through which Vlautin carries these tales and the sweetly lamenting voice of Amy Boone who sings their narratives.

Seventh track State Line exemplifies the brisk musical vignette in every song, and here the stark message is presented in the line 'my whole life can be seen in one scene'. That scene is relayed as the time when she was a young girl of 15 and left home having stolen her folks’ car and 'made it as far as the state line', this a metaphor for the boundary which prevents all of us from moving away and beyond whatever it is that stifles and diminishes our lives. The narrative is reflected through her life now as a 44 year old woman who never made it away and beyond in all those years since that teenage attempt, where she feels everyone else is 'blurring by in their better lives', unable to grasp [as all these vignettes tell us] that no one actually escapes – it just seems so because one has to believe it is possible. The most despairing line in this song is how the teenage attempt was prompted by the realisation that she should leave with the certainty of a life doomed to 'drown in that house or to drown in the world'. And we know the outcome as the song closes on the repeated line 'stuck on the state line'.

Eighth track Flight 31 presents a different but equally transient mode of transport and fruitless means of escape.

I really love this album and think the musicianship is outstanding. Amy Boone's voice is great and reminds of Lucinda Williams, and at times Hope Sandoval. Thoroughly recommend it but wish it was longer!
