CD reviews for eastmountainsouth

Eastmountainsouth
Eastmountainsouth may not be a country act, but anybody that loves the edgier side of Emmylou Harris, for instance, will likely have a soft spot for this duo's music. The mood is hushed and sad, for the most part, so it may take a while to pick up on this group's subtle charms. Its expressions range from the longing sung about on "Too Soon," to a cover of Stephen Foster's always timely "Hard Times." Kat Maslich takes the lion's share of the vocals here, but Peter Adams is also an equally compelling singer. »»»
