This funky-time tune, and album, checks all of my favorite elements of Americana music -- great song, melodic hooks, smart lyrics, tasty guitar playing, and wonderful soulful vocals. It's one of many playlist-worthy songs from the critically lauded singer/songwriter Adam Douglas. If you like this one, you'll love his new album BETTER ANGELS.
Douglas -- who was born and raised in Oklahoma, lived in Chicago and Minneapolis, but for the past decade has lived in Norway -- takes us on a journey of what he calls a "midlife analysis." Better Angels is a soul-searching collection of songs and a landing strip for a musician who has found himself and his genre. Considered one of the best guitar players in Norway, too.
