ALBUM REVIEW: Chris Shiflett – West Coast Town

a4c5f905-2a5f-43b2-8dd4-f554b82f27eb

Chris Shiflett is a busy man, dividing himself between Foo Fighters duties, hosting his Walking The Floor podcast and working on his solo career. He’s increasingly immersed himself in country music and this, his third solo album, is his finest yet.

He pulled together a master team including producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell), recorded it in RCA Studio A, Nashville and the result is a carefree blend of vintage electric country rock n roll, a ragged punk edge and contemporary Americana. The guitars are a real highlight, as is Shiflett’s voice which finds a sweet spot between honky tonk and country-rock. This swings, shuffles and rocks in equal and impressive measures, from start to finish.
