ALBUM REVIEW: The Delines ~ Colfax

ptw scorebw8a1592273915_10Willy Vlautin is best known as frontman for alt-country band Richmond Fontaine and as an increasingly renowned fiction author. Now he’s added The Delines to his CV, a band where he takes a background role as songwriter and player with the immediate spotlight falling on singer Amy Boone (Damnations) who possesses a devastating ache and melancholic tone in her voice. Her style perfectly complements the band’s late-night country soul vibe with neon-lit slow-moving scenes that conjure up images of bars, break-ups daily struggles of life and love. Vlautin has penned his finest set of songs on this emotionally rich and moving album.
