Time & Water
At the time this record was released, Last Train Home had just been named the Washington DC area's artist of the year by music folks who know. The large alt-country and pop band fronted by music journalist Eric Brace made it's most melodic and absorbing album with 'Time and Water'. Check out the compelling Quarter to 3, the honky-tonking Blue Skies or the poignant All Gone Now for tastes of how well Brace's honest voice and stellar songwriting mesh with the group's abundant Mavericks-like sound. The title track, Time and Water, absolutely soars. A country-oriented band with musicians that elevate the sound. Put it in the changer and hit repeat.
