Josh T. Pearson - Last of the Country Gentlemen
I’ll talk a little more about this than most albums because I listened last night and I liked it quite a bit. Pearson writes some very different country music. Really mellow and drawn out, if you go into this album expecting “country”, you’re going to be disappointed. Most tracks are around 10 minutes long and they can get somewhat repetitive. Oddly though, it works really well. The instrumentation is mostly just Josh, his guitar, and a string quartet, although the last track adds in some other elements. He touches on some difficult and unflattering subjects, such as loving a woman who isn’t his wife. Ver melancholy and touching, the record feels very authentic and personal. Quite recommended.
