I’ve said it before but it bears repeating, until Steve Earl has his second (or third) great comeback there is a void in the music world that needs to be filled. Hayes Carll (here), Earl Pickens (here) and Chris Scruggs (here and here) have done their darndest but now it’s Roger Dean Young’s turn. In the US he records for Copperspine Records in the UK for Loose Records.
Loose has got one mp3 available from his September/October release and it’s a doozie. Roger Dean Young & Tin Cup as a band are a large collective of Vancouver players from a number of diverse genre’s from Appalachian old time to classical, and Latin jazz to Arabian. “Slider” is the song released from the new record Casa. The song starts with silence and creeps towards a whisper (with only acoustic guitar for accompaniment) and finally builds to a horn-laden, genuinely original sound.
