Light on the darker side of the street,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Colfax (Audio CD)
After somewhat getting lost up in the woods in the High Country, Willy Vlautin has returned with a masterpiece, 10 exquisite tracks plus a Randy Newman number thrown in for good measure.
Willy’s tales always seem to be from the darker side of the street, but with Colfax Avenue being the longest street in the USA, there’s room for expansion here with this superb band of musicians.
The result is an album with a more relaxed & lighter feel with some real highlights, which should appeal to a wider audience rather than just the RF faithful.
Amy Boone brings a real heartfelt poignancy to the songs, there’s ethereal pedal steel throughout & superb keyboards particularly on stand out tracks “State Line”; “I got My Shadows” & “I won’t slip up” which capture the mood perfectly.
Some of Willy’s best work to date and most definitely album of the year... so far!
