New from Steve Earle
Thanks to Expecting Rain for linking to this fine new track from Steve Earle, ‘Calico County’ – with news of an album to follow in April called The Low Highway. It’s an infectious, driving, slogger of a song, with fine guitars – Chris Masterson, I presume, sounding in great shape – and Steve’s vocals in excellent, growling form. More than a little hint of ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’ in its DNA, and something of Elvis Costello’s ‘Pump It Up’ too, which is pretty acceptable ancestry. Lovely stuff, and a very nice looking cover to go with it.
