Album review: The Gracious Losers – Six Road Ends

You find some people get too hung up on country music, possibly scarred from some of the undoubtedly terrible examples of the genre. You can’t write a musical style off because of the worst examples, though, and right here you see country music being taken in a wide range of directions. There’s enough gospel and soul peeking through the cracks to convince you that there’s plenty going on.

Six Road Ends is a really easy album to stick on and let wash over you. Sure, it’s not hugely original or innovative, but who needs that all the time? This is a comfortable and uplifting collection of songs, with plenty of hazy and bluesy sidesteps along the way. With a cast of qualified pals and hired hands on display, it’s the sort of record that will leave you pining for the return of live shows and a good night out.

Six Road Ends was released 25th March via Last Night From Glasgow
